Whittlefield Primary School is a mainstream primary school. We believe that every teacher is a teacher of every child or young person, including those with SEND. If children are not able to ‘learn the way we teach’ then we must ‘teach the way they learn’. Good practice for pupils with Special Educational Needs is good practice for all.
We identify the appropriate action to take in order to meet specific needs. Early identification is essential because the sooner we take action the more responsive the pupil is likely to be to the intervention.
The identification process is achieved through continual use of classroom observations, questioning and assessments of all pupils. Progress is tracked formally on a half termly basis and where appropriate, more frequently. This aids identification of their immediate and long term needs.
