All children are unique individuals, and at Allerton Church Of England Primary School we embrace and celebrate the differences between them.
At the heart of the work of every class is a continuous cycle of planning, teaching and assessment which takes account of the wide range of abilities, aptitudes and interests of the children. The majority of children will learn and progress within these arrangements.
For some children, they may need to be catered for in a way that is significantly different from the rest of the children due to behavioural, emotional, communication, medical or academic reasons. Within schools this is referred to as a ‘special educational need’.
Some children may come into Early Years with this need having been already identified. Some may have this need identified at school.
Whenever this need is identified, we aim to provide the best possible support to your child through a partnership between home and school.At Allerton CE Primary School, our broad and balanced curriculum for all pupils, offers suitable learning challenges for all children, a response to pupils’ diverse learning needs, and activities which plan to overcome potential barriers to learning.
For children who have special educational needs, which mean they do not learn in the same way, or at the same rate as their peers or have a disability, our Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND) policy outlines the educational support we provide and is referred to as our ‘SEND Offer’, detailed below. This provision is alongside the Leeds Local Offer.
Our SEN information gives details of how we are providing for our children with special needs.
