Sensory and/or Physical Needs
SEND Code of Practice (2015):
Some of the things children and young people with these needs might find difficult are:
Types of support we currently offer:
Teachers change what they are teaching and/or the way they are teaching to help the child learn more, with the rest of the class.
We have sound amplification systems installed within every classroom, which amplify the sound of the teacher’s voice.
We have Teaching Assistants trained in providing physical support to children with physical disabilities, delivering physiotherapy programmes, meeting the needs of children with hearing impairments and in delivering fine– and gross– motor skills programmes.
We have specialist equipment for use during lessons such as PE, to enable full access to the curriculum.
We are currently supported by the hearing impairment and physical disability teams, for a number of pupils. Should a child with a visual impairment enrol at our school, we would seek support from the visual impairment team.
For further information, please see our Accessibility Action Plan for details of what we are currently working on within our school.
As a school, we are committed to continuing to improve access to our Grade II listed building.
