How are adaptations made to the curriculum and the learning environment of children and young people with SEND?

How is teaching and the curriculum adapted to my child’s needs?

  • The curriculum is differentiated to meet the needs of all children.
  • Children are supported in lessons to help them make progress as part of the class.
  • Special resources are provided to help children develop understanding and gain independence. These may include visual timetables, word banks, resources to support visual or hearing impairment and practical mathematics apparatus.
  • Children with SEND take part in carefully structured interventions planned by their class teacher with support from the SEND Leader. These include interventions to develop
  • Spelling of high frequency words
  • Structuring writing
  • Number and Calculation skills
  • Reading comprehension

We have five SEND Teaching Assistants who support children with complex needs in lessons and through discrete interventions.
