Our Inclusion team consists of:
This team supports our teachers and teaching assistants as they meet the needs of children who have been identified as needing additional support, including those with special educational needs or disabilities (SEND), those in receipt of pupil premium funding, pupils with English as an additional language (EAL) and the more able, gifted or talented.
Children are given targeted levels of work according their individual needs and the Inclusion Leader can coordinate additional support through the use of provision mapping. By providing for the needs of every child at the school, our aim is to give everyone the best possible opportunity to develop to their full potential, to make a difference and achieve excellence.
At Town Farm we have a Disability Equality Scheme and an Accessibility Plan, which help us to prepare for the additional needs of any child, parent, staff member or visitor who may require assistance.
We are currently working towards achieving the SEND Inclusion Award, which provides a framework for recognising outstanding SEND provision in schools. The award helps schools establish their strengths and weaknesses in terms of SEND provision and prioritise areas for further improvement and development. This also helps schools determine where current provision is having high or little impact on the progress and outcomes of pupils with SEND.
