Special Educational Needs

Christ the King aims to be an inclusive school

 

We are proud of the comments in the latest Ofsted 2018 report, stating that:

‘Pupils who have special educational needs (SEN) and/or disabilities do well. This includes pupils who attend the specially resourced provision for pupils who have SEN and/or disabilities (specially resourced provision).

Pupils who have SEN and/or disabilities are served well by this school. Additional staff are used effectively to support learning, including for pupils who integrate into mainstream classes from the specially resourced provision. Prompts and reminders from support staff are unobtrusive and seamless. As a result, this group of pupils are well motivated and make good progress.’

 

In November 2019 Christ the King achieved the SEND Inclusion Award

 

 

Principles:

At Christ the King we follow the principles of Inclusion as laid down in the Code of Practice for Special Educational Needs 2014:

  • To ensure all pupils are offered full access to a broad, balanced and relevant curriculum
  • All pupils will be given the opportunity to reach their full potential educationally, emotionally, and physically
  • All teachers view themselves as teachers of pupils with special educational needs, teaching such pupils is a whole school responsibility
  • All pupils with special educational needs should have their needs met
  • Pupil's special educational needs will normally be met in the mainstream classroom
  • Pupil's views should be sought and taken into account
  • Parents/carers have a vital role to play in supporting their child's education and therefore good home/school links are established

Our policy for Special Educational Needs (SEN) and our Accessibility Plan are available on the Policies page of this website.  The Policies page is in "Key Information".

The admission of children with SEN to the main school is covered in our admission policy which is available on the Admissions page.  The Admissions page is in "Key Information".

Arrangements for the admission of children to The Ark, our Specialist Resource for children with autism, are explained in the ASD Resource section of our website.

Individual Education Plan (IEP)

IEPs are used to support children with specific needs, it is a tool to help plan, teach, monitor and evaluate their progress.

They are written by the class teacher in conjunction with the parent/carer and child. Once implemented the IEP is evaluated regularly, with new targets set or existing targets modified.

Please see example IEP below for more information.
