As it states in our SEND Policy, at Christ Church we have a shared expectation that all pupils regardless of their specific needs should be offered inclusive quality teaching which will enable them to make the best possible progress and feel that they are a valued member of the wider school community. Our SEND policy outlines how Christ Church aims to meet the additional needs of all children.

Our school offers a range of provision to support children with needs that affect:

  • communication and interaction
  • cognition and learning
  • social skills
  • mental health
  • sensory development
  • physical abilities.

We support children in a variety of ways across a range of provisions such as small group work to improve motor skills, 1:1 support with Speech and Language targets or small group outdoor learning provision and we liaise regularly with expert practitioners such as educational psychologists, speech and language therapists and specialist teachers to ensure that we are supporting children as best we can to access learning at school. The SEND Report details the support that is available at Christ Church School.

We aim to provide relevant training and support to help teachers achieve good practice in teaching all children. This is achieved by:

  • working with parents, children and staff
  • monitoring plans, lessons and books,
  • providing interventions, and seeking external advice

The way we support children is designed to promote pupils working towards becoming independent, confident and resilient learners.
