Special Educational Needs and Disability

This section of our website is to provide parents with key information about the inclusive practice within the Bythams Primary School. This includes areas such as special educational needs and how we support children with special educational needs within our school. We hope this information is useful, but please contact the class teacher, SENCo or Head teacher should you have any questions. 

At The Bythams Primary School we are ambitious for every child.  We want allour children to love learning and understand how to be a successful learner.  We deliver a broad and balanced curriculum, adapted to meet individual learning needs, and ensure that all children make progress.

We do this by:

  • creating an inclusive, positive, and supportive learning environment for all children, which removes barriers to learning and participation.
  • understanding the 4 broad areas of SEND need, including neurodiversity and that every child is unique.
  • ensuring all pupils receive high quality first teaching as universal provision, complemented where necessary by structured, targeted small group and/or specialist one-to-one interventions, as the 3 tiers of support for SEND.
  • ensuring interventions are carefully targeted through identification and assessment of need. 
  • delivering research-based, high quality SEND provision; remaining informed of new developments, thinking, approaches to SEND and learning including cognitive and metacognitive approaches.
  • building a holistic understanding of pupils, needs using the cycle of ‘assess, plan, do, review’ within the graduated approach to SEND which informs the next steps for learning.
  • seeking input from parents, other professionals, services, and the voice of the child.
  • working effectively with teaching assistants (TAs) so that they supplement, not replace, teaching from the classroom teacher.
  • ensuring all staff receive high quality SEND information and training so they have consistently high expectations of what all children can achieve and understand the implications of SEND on learning.   

The following documents provide more information in relation to our SEND provision and how school and home can support children.  If you have any questions or wish to discuss SEND provision for your child, please do not hesitate to contact me.
