Ashperton Primary Academy is an inclusive school and offers the following range of provision to support children with SEND.
In our school we see children as individual learners. We find the best way to support children’s learning. We identify children who are finding learning more difficult by:
If we notice that a child is having difficulties we may use more specific tools to assess why they are having difficulty, which may require referral to more specialised agencies or teachers.

All children receive high quality teaching at our school. There is a whole school approach to SEN with an inclusive curriculum, personalised learning for children is important.
Children’s progress is tracked and monitored. Pupil Progress Meetings held between the class teacher and the Deputy head teacher help to identify where children are on track or if further adjustments need to be made to help individual children.
Teachers respond to children’s needs by:
All staff maintain up to date knowledge about a wide range of SEN. There are opportunites for staff to undertake relevant training to ensure the needs of every child are met.

The school regularly liaises with the Speech & Language Service, Occupational Therapy Service, Educational Psychology Service, Behaviour Service, Parenting support and Child and Adult Mental Health Service.
We actively encourage partnerships with parents as parents and carers have a vital role to play in their child’s learning. The child and the parent’s voice is very important to us.
At all stages of the special needs process, parents are kept fully informed and involved. We take account of the wishes, feelings and knowledge of parents at all stages. We encourage parents to make an active contribution to their child’s education.
We inform the parents of any outside intervention, and we share the process of decision-making by providing clear information relating to the education of children with special educational needs
Children’s progress and what support they are receiving is discussed with parents at parent evenings with the class teacher. The School will also communicate with parents via phone calls, text messages, home school books, planned meetings.
The Governor responsible for SEN is currently awaiting appointment
The governing body does its best to secure the necessary provision for any pupil identified as having special educational needs. The governors ensure that all teachers are aware of the importance of providing for these children.
