At Marfleet Primary we are committed to giving all our children including those with SEND needs the knowledge and cultural capital they need to succeed in life. We recognise that some children need additional support above and beyond everyday teaching and as such we strive to be flexible and adaptable in our approach to teaching all children, regardless of their needs.
As a school we follow the guidance set out in the Special Educational Needs Code of Practice 2014. This means we follow a graduated approach to intervention when supporting our children. By creating individual support plans, called SEND Pupil Passports, a child’s needs and support is clearly defined and accessible to all staff.
Marfleet strive to provide high-quality, inclusive education for all our children. For some of our younger children we have recently developed a special nurture provision which we have aptly named ‘The Blossoms’. Here support is tailored to meet their needs in an environment that is geared towards their needs. Support in our nurture provision is delivered through short, small group interventions with a focus on developing basic skills.
We very much value the input and support from our parents. Parents are invited to attend SEND review meetings every term where their child’s support is discussed and in partnership we agree on the best ways forward. Sometimes, we need to access support from beyond our school resources and we may make referrals to outside agencies. These include: Speech and Language, iPASS, outreach services and Educational Psychology. The advice received is clearly communicated with parents and fed into a child’s SEND Pupil Passport.
If you have any questions regarding Special Educational Needs at Marfleet, I will be happy to talk to you. I can be contacted via the school office.
