Nationally it is expected that approximately 20% of children experience learning challenges at some point of their education, as smaller percentage may be judged as gifted and talented. All pupils in our Academies have access to the full curriculum regardless of their needs. Some children may require more specialised teaching which can be better provided within a small group or one a one-to-one basis away from the classroom; however our aim is to be as inclusive as possible.
Across Tall Oaks Academy Trust, class teachers plan the support required alongside Mrs Willis. This is done by providing individually differentiated learning, the use of additional support, small group or individual teaching, use of the Safeguarding and Welfare Officer for nurture session as well as using additional outside agencies.
Any child with SEND has personal targets, this plan is reviewed on a termly basis with the parents and Class Teacher or Mrs Willis.
If you think your child has additional needs or you have a concern that you would like to discuss, then please discuss this with your child’s Class Teacher or arrange an appointment with Mrs Willis. Mrs Willis can be contacted by telephone at any of our school sites or by emailing email@example.com.
