Special Educational Needs
Our Inclusion team consists of:
- Inclusion leader/SENCO
- Inclusion leader/Pupil Premium and behaviour
- Learning Mentors/ELSA
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 proud to announce that we have recently achieved the SEND Inclusion Award. This award provides a framework for recognising outstanding SEND provision in schools. It helps schools deliver high-quality education for pupils with SEND. Compliant with the SEND Code of Practice, the award framework focuses on removing barriers to learning through early identification, inclusive teaching and leadership. It also allows schools to evaluate impact to improve classroom practice and pupil outcomes.
