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. Our Outwood Provision Pyramids show the different levels of support that we offer children in our school.
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.
Our Senco at Outwood is Mrs Leanne Davies and she can be contacted via your child's class teacher or by phoning the school office on 0161 437 1715.
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).
We use the Stockport Entitlement Framework to ensure that quality first teaching strategies are in place for all children at Outwood Primary School. You can find out more about the Stockport Entitlement Framework here:
