THE SEND AIMS OF THE SCHOOL
At St. Michael's Community Academy, we have a strong commitment to supporting all children to enable them to achieve at school. This is done primarily through Quality First teaching in the classroom but, in some cases, it may benefit our children to access further help and support in order to overcome a barrier to learning. This will be done through a graduated approach, being initiated by the class teacher, and supported by the school SENDCO and, where appropriate, by external specialists.
Ensure that all pupils have access to a broad and balanced curriculum.
Provide a differentiated curriculum appropriate to the individual’s needs and ability.
Ensure the identification of all pupils requiring SEND provision as early as possible in their school career.
Ensure that SEND pupils take as full a part as possible in all school activities.
Ensure that parents of SEND pupils are kept fully informed of their child’s progress and attainment.
Create an environment where pupils can contribute to their own learning, and where they feel safe and listened to.
