Inclusion at All Saints
Hello! I am Alice Corr, the Inclusion Lead at All Saints CEVA Primary School and Nursery Unit. I have been in this role for the past five years. I hold the National Award for Special Educational Needs Co-ordination PG Cert and am very passionate about supporting the needs of all children. I am currently on Maternity Leave and the role of SENco is covered by Miss Lauren Smith.
At All Saints, we pride ourselves on being a highly inclusive primary school, where we strive to meet the needs of each individual child. Staff work closely alongside myself as the SENCo, external agencies and other professionals in order to ensure that children are being provided with the highest standard of education, regardless of any additional needs that they may have. Quality first teaching is of the utmost importance, lessons are differentiated and adapted to meet the needs of all learners within a class. Where needed, practical resources and scaffolding is used to encourage children to work independently and to be able to access their year group objectives. As a school, we run numerous evidence based interventions to provide additional support to children and staff are trained to deliver these interventions.
We know that early identification of children’s needs is vital in ensuring that the appropriate provision is in place in order to meet the needs of individuals. Staff identify and pass on any concerns to myself as the SENCo as soon as they arise and as a result this enables us to address any emerging needs as soon as possible. Parental input is highly encouraged and valued during the identification process of a child’s additional needs, parents are involved in any discussions with external professionals and also attend termly meetings to review and update children’s individual education plans.
Every child at All Saints is seen as an individual and staff have very high expectations for all children. We all believe that every child should leave our school as a confident individual, a successful learner and a responsible citizen.
Please see our full SEND Report below.
We urge parents / carers with any concerns regarding the SEND policy or the provision made for their child to speak to the school as soon as possible and, in the first instance, to the class teacher or the SENCO. If parents / carers feel their child's needs are still not being met they should make an appointment to see the Headteacher.
If parents / carers require further advice / support, they should use the local Information, Advice and Support Service for Special Educational Needs and Disability SENDIASS http://www.iassnorthants.co.uk , telephone 01604 364772.
