At Sacred Heart we believe that every pupil is made in the image of God, are wonderfully made and that every pupil should be celebrated for their needs and individuality.
Every child is uniquely different and not all children learn at the same rate, some children find it much harder to learn than others. They may need extra help in school to flourish and meet their full potential. These children are said to have special educational needs. About 1 in 5 children will need extra help at school at some time in their education.
We aim to provide an inclusive education for all pupils no matter their need or disability enabling each pupil to meet their own potential. We do this through targeted support in the classroom using scaffolded resources, in an intervention group, 1:1 tutoring, ELSA and nurture group sessions. Pupils with SEND have their own pupil passport that sets long term and short-term targets which is evaluated every term with parents, pupils and teachers in partnership.
Special Educational Needs and provision can be considered as falling under four broad areas, as identified in the SEN Code of Practice.
