Special Educational Needs and Disability


Special Educational Needs and Disability

Schools must "use their best endeavours" for children with SEND and they must "have regard to" the SEND Code of Practice. This means that they must follow it unless they can show that something else would work better. In addition, Ofsted will check on how well children with SEND are learning and how much progress they are making.

 Special Educational Needs and Disability Provision

SEND provision is anything that is provided to meet a child's SEND that is 'additional to or different from' provision made for all children. 

At Heath Fields we have the following provision:

  • 1 to 1 Teaching Assistant and Teaching support
  • Small group intervention work (reading, writing and maths)
  • Personalised pupil progress targets
  • Personalised resources and/or learning tasks
  • Rapid Readers Scheme
