SEND (SPECIAL EDUCATIONAL NEEDS & DISABILITY) AND INCLUSION
Our SENCO is Mrs L Wilkinson
in Our children are unique individuals with their own particular strengths and needs. We follow the aspirations of the Stockport Entitlement Framework in that the needs of all learners are identified early and any required adjustments, adaptations, intervention or support are provided at the earliest opportunity. We are an ‘enabling’ school and work with parents and carers to ensure that children who may have special educational needs get the support they need to achieve their potential. ‘Parents speak very positively about the quality of support which they receive, and greatly appreciate the trusting relationships which they have developed with staff who, they say, frequently “go the extra mile” to learn more about and respond appropriately to the specific needs of their children.’ Stockport Inclusion Quality Mark, November 2018
We draw on the advice of specialists to enhance our personalised approach. If appropriate, the speech therapist, educational psychologist, Sensory Support Service, Learning Support Service and Behaviour Support Service are available and may work alongside us in school.
More details can be found in our SEN Information Report below.
The Stockport Entitlement Framework links closely to the Equality Act (2010) and the SEND Code of Practice. School access, resources and provision are kept under constant review. Our Disability Access Policy and Plan is available on on request. Children with special physical needs have access to school via the main entrance and rear ramps. School should be notified of any physical conditions and symptoms in confidence as soon as possible so that specific needs can be addressed.
Banks Lane Infant and Nursery School - SEND Information Report
Banks Lane Infant and Nursery School values the individuality of all our children. We are committed to giving all children every opportunity to achieve the highest standards regardless of age, gender, race, disability, faith or background. The school aims to be inclusive which means that equality of opportunity must be a reality for all children. We believe that ‘Learning is Fun’ and aim to develop a lifelong love of learning through a motivational curriculum where activities are matched to individual levels of ability. Provision is made for children who may have SEN in any area of need - Communication and Interaction, Cognition and Learning, Social, Mental and Emotional, Sensory and/or Physical.
We believe that positive partnerships with parents play a vital role in a child’s education and well being. Detailed knowledge of our children and early identification of their needs enable us to support our inclusive ethos.
The SEN Information Report describes how we support children with a range of special needs.
