At Lawford we believe that all children are entitled to a broad, balanced and relevant curriculum through which we support children with additional needs. All children are encouraged to achieve their full potential and to be included in the social, sporting and academic life of the school. We aim to provide educational experiences that take into account the individual needs of children, appropriate to their level of ability.
At Lawford we work closely with families and all staff to ensure we can identify and support any child where special educational needs have been identified. We use evidence based interventions throughout the school with a strong early focus on Speech and Language difficulties being identified using the WELLCOMM resources and Talk Boost is used to help improve communication in the early part of the school. These interventions become increasingly personalised as children go through the school.
The school SENDCo is responsible for monitoring and organising the support for those children on the Special Educational Needs Support List although all class teachers are responsible for the daily teaching and learning of every pupil in their class.
All teaching should be aimed at moving those pupils with special educational needs on to their next steps in a way that motivates them and ensures they feel confident and proud of their achievements.
