Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND)
At Greenleaf Primary School every child matters and as such we have high expectations of all members of our school community. We work in partnership with parents to ensure that everyone has equal access to a broad and balanced curriculum that reflects their individual needs and equips them for the future. We recognise that all children are individuals and we encourage our children to develop at an appropriate pace, with the appropriate level of support.
Our curriculum is carefully designed to ensure all pupils, irrespective of their needs, thrive and succeed. Pupils with SEND will have the same opportunities to take part in enriching experiences, both in school and in the wider world, as their peers.
We are committed to a whole-school approach towards providing an inclusive curriculum. Therefore, we ensure that our staff are well equipped with the knowledge and skills required to effectively support all pupils. Quality First Teaching is embedded within the practice of all staff, underpinned by extensive subject knowledge across the curriculum. Subject leaders plan a highly differentiated curriculum which facilitates access for all children, thinking carefully about the needs of all pupils.
For pupils requiring additional support, small-group interventions are led by experienced TAs; these interventions are closely monitored and their impact is evaluated regularly. Where pupils require personalised provision, we draw on specialist knowledge in order to tailor their learning experiences so that they are given every opportunity to progress and succeed.
