SEN Information and Policies

Special Educational Needs and/or Disability (SEND)

 

At Middlethorpe Primary Academy, we believe that each child is unique and that during his/her time at Middlethorpe may be in need of special consideration or support, either in the long or short term.

At Middlethorpe Primary Academy, we are an inclusive academy in which children of all abilities and from all cultures and backgrounds are valued equally.

At Middlethorpe Primary Academy, we are strongly committed to raising the aspirations of and the expectations for all pupils and we provide a focus on outcomes for children and not just provision/support.

Each child has access to a broad and balanced curriculum that meets their needs, builds on their strengths and abilities and enables them to progress appropriately.

At Middlethorpe Primary Academy we believe therefore that a child with special educational needs should have their needs met. In meeting these needs, the academy believes in the collaboration between child, parents/carers and academy staff.

Through a collaborative approach, we will always endeavour to listen to your concerns and anxieties, which can arise when our children are experiencing difficulties in any form, and work with you in resolving those issues. You will be invited in for regular reviews of your child’s progress and attainment but I am always available to talk to either by telephone or arranging a meeting that fits better around your commitments.

If you would prefer to contact me via email do not hesitate to send your questions, queries or ideas to my email address s.storr@middlethorpeprimary.co.uk
