At Outwood Primary School we provide a broad and balanced curriculum for all children. The Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum and the National Curriculum are our starting points for planning which meets the specific needs of individuals and groups of children. When planning, teachers set suitable learning challenges and respond to children’s diverse learning needs. Some children have learning and assessment requirements that could create barriers to learning.
These learning and assessment requirements are likely to arise as a result of a child having special educational needs. Teachers take account of these requirements and make provision, where necessary, to support individuals or groups of children and thus enable them to participate effectively in curriculum and assessment activities.
Children may have special educational needs either throughout, or at any time during, their school career. Our school ensures that curriculum planning and assessment for children with special educational needs takes account of the type and extent of the difficulty experienced by the child.
At Outwood Primary School we believe that every leader is a leader of SEND and that every teacher is a teacher of SEND. We recognise that ‘Special educational provision is underpinned by high quality teaching and is compromised by anything less.’ (SEND Code of Practice 0-25, 2015).
