Special Educational Needs and Disability (SEND)
Our school SENDCo is Mrs Louise Lench who can be contacted via email firstname.lastname@example.org for matters relating to SEND at Newtown.
At Newtown Church of England Primary School, we recognise that all pupils are entitled to a quality of provision that will enable them to achieve their potential. We believe in positive intervention, removing barriers to learning, raising expectations and levels of achievement and working in partnership with other agencies in order to provide a positive educational experience for all our pupils including those with a special educational need or disability.
Our school recognises there are particular groups of pupils whose circumstances require additional consideration by those who work with them to support their SEN.
At Newtown Church of England Primary School, the SENDCO ensures all teachers in school understand the implications for those children who have SEND. The SENDCO works in close partnership with children, staff, families and outside agencies.
Our aim is to ensure that all pupils, regardless of their specific needs make the best possible progress.
There are now four broad areas of SEND, these are:
- Communication and Interaction
This area of need includes children with Autism Spectrum Condition and those with Speech, Language and Communication Needs
- Cognition and Learning
This includes children with Specific Learning Difficulties, Moderate Learning Difficulties, Severe Learning Difficulties and Profound and Multiple Learning Difficulties
- Social, Emotional and Mental Health Difficulties
This includes any pupils who have an emotional, social or mental health need that is impacting on their ability to learn
- Sensory and/or Physical Difficulties
This area includes children with hearing impairment, visual impairment, multi-sensory impairment and physical difficulties
