We believe that the student should be at the centre of everything we do and that they should be encouraged to strive for success whilst relishing their education with us. We are committed to redress the balance of any inequality that may exist to support our students to make this a reality for them. And, whilst every student with special education needs should be given an appropriate level of additional support if required, they should also be encouraged to become independent learners.
We believe that all teachers are teachers of special educational needs. Every teacher is responsible and accountable for the progress and development of all students in their class even where students access support from teaching assistants or specialist staff. With this in mind all students are given challenging but attainable targets in order that they can achieve their full potential regardless of any additional need they may require. In order to facilitate this teaching and support staff are provided with regular whole school and individual training to be able to meet the individual needs of those students who may require a more individualised teaching and learning experience.
We listen carefully to the suggestions and advice from parents and encourage a collaborative working relationship with regular informal and formal communication taking place between the SENDCo and the learning support team. We strongly believe that by working together with our students, their parents, teaching staff and our support staff we are able to overcome potential barriers to our students’ success at All Saints.
