Our Campus SEND Values
- Our schools are highly inclusive. Pupils feel safe, secure, valued and respected. As we have an encouraging, positive and supportive atmosphere everybody is given the opportunity to develop their personal learning, access appropriate support, and begin to learn from each other.
- We focus on the early identification of additional needs to enable our pupils have appropriate support in place in order to remove barriers to learning at the earliest opportunity.
- All pupils have equal access to the curriculum, resources and support, appropriate to their needs. We want everyone to feel successful and have their success recognised and celebrated.
- High quality, inclusive teaching ensures that planning and implementation meets the needs of ALL pupils, and builds in high expectations for ALL pupils, including those with SEND.
- Our teachers’ have the enthusiasm and supportive attitude that engage and motivate learners which ensure pupils progress and allows pupils to overcome any barriers to learning.
- Our teachers use individual support strategies and we provide access to additional, targeted teacher input and SEND intervention where needed.
- We track the progress of our pupils through a range of methods including standardised testing and SEND assessments to ensure progress and identify gaps in learning or difficulties early so that the right individualised support can be put in place.
- We value and encourage parent and carer involvement to work as partners to provide the best support for the learning and well-being of our SEND pupils
- We work closely with experts and outside professionals to gain advice on how to support our SEND pupils as part of a graduated approach to continually ‘Assess, Plan, Do, Review’ the support and interventions in place for our SEND Learners.

“Staff help to calm me down and let me talk to them about what is wrong. It helps me get out how I’m feeling so it’s not sticking on my chest. I know who I can go to for help if I need support.”
