At Roundthorn Primary Academy, our aim is that all pupils will achieve their full potential.
It is essential for children to develop a positive self-image and opportunities for success must be provided for every child. We believe that all children are entitled to have access to a broad, balanced and differentiated curriculum; and that every effort should be made to support each child in attaining the basic standards of literacy and numeracy which are essential in everyday life.
We recognise that each child has individual needs and may have additional educational needs at some stage in their school career. These may arise from learning or behavioural difficulties, physical disability. Children develop and learn at different rates and it is important that we view their progress in a positive way. We will look at what a child has achieved and plan the next steps in his or her learning, rather than focusing on what he or she is unable to do.
We believe that early and efficient identification and assessment of pupils’ needs is essential so that targets for learning can be set and appropriate forms of intervention and support can be planned. Each pupil’s progress will be monitored closely and reviewed regularly in order to ensure that effective strategies are being used.
We aim to work as a team to support each other, sharing ideas, resources and expertise. The Special Educational Needs and Disabilities Coordinator (SENDCo) is available to assist teachers in formulating Individual Plans, setting targets, choosing strategies and resources and reviewing progress. Children with additional educational needs are a vulnerable minority and to protect their interests, we aim to ensure that special educational needs provision is given equal status within all curriculum areas.
