Inclusion and Special Educational Needs

SEND at Christ Church CE (c) Primary School

SENco: Amy Stafford

At Christ Church, we are committed to providing a fun, stimulating and inclusive curriculum to ensure the best possible progress for all of our pupils. Each pupil at Christ Church is valued and supported, whatever their needs or abilities. We encourage our pupils to be aspirational, to strive for success and to make progress against their previous achievements.  Our aim is for every pupil to leave Christ Church as happy, skilled learners, with a desire to continue learning and be successful in life. We utilise the expertise and experience of our staff to secure special educational provision for pupils who require support that is ‘additional to and different from’ that provided within our differentiated curriculum. Our provision addresses the four areas of need identified in the Code of Practice (September 2014, updated in January 2015):

  • Communication and interaction
  • Cognition and learning
  • Social, mental and emotional health
  • Sensory/physical needs


Our Christ Church Aims:

  • That all pupils should reach their full potential and develop as happy, skilled learners to become confident and independent in their learning.  
  • To support pupils' learning in an inclusive environment; not making them feel different or inferior to their peers. 
  • To continuously monitor pupils' progress through regular assessment. 
  • To work together with pupils, parents/carers, governors, support services and outside agencies to provide support to meet the individual needs of every pupil.
  • To ensure that our information is up to date; accurate records are kept of pupils which recognise targets and achievements. 
  • To ensure that all adults know the targets for those they support. 
  • To support teachers in ensuring provision for SEND pupils. 
  • To ensure targeted interventions are available and regularly evaluated. 
  • To use individual educational plans to meet the needs of all children on the SEND register.
  • To work in partnership with parents/carers to share information on pupils' progress, set individual targets and celebrate achievements. 
  • To meet the requirements of the Code of Practice (September 2014, updated in January 2015)

Pupil Voice: 

As a school we value what every child says and their opinion on their learning. 

Here is what some of the children at Christ Church think about the support they receive: 

I sometimes struggled to think of ideas in my writing but now I am confident and have things to help me.

I love reading and think I am a bit better than I used to be. 

The group work is really good. I love working with other children too. 

I wasn't always too good at my times tables however I really like learning them now and think I've got a lot better.
