Royds has an inclusive ethos and works in partnership with children, parents and other agencies to provide the best possible educational outcomes. We have high expectations of all our children and put support in place at the earliest possible stage where needed.
All Special Educational Needs (SEN) is overseen by the Special Educational Needs Co-ordinator (SENCO), Miss Donkin. The Senior Leadership Team evaluate all special needs provision on regular basis throughout the year and report to the school Governing Body on how individual needs are being met, and on how special needs funding is being spend.
All students are treated as individuals and the class teacher, alongside other support staff, plan an appropriately differentiated curriculum for children with additional needs to ensure high quality teaching and learning with effective support and resource. Clear pupil profiles and behavioural plans are put in place and reviewed regularly. Key assessments are made to ensure children are on track to meet their targets and that planning accurately addresses need. Progress and plans are regularly reviewed and evaluated to inform next steps.
Parents are vital partners in their child’s journey through school. They are invited to attend review meetings of their child’s progress and are encouraged to engage in supporting learning in different ways. If a parent feels their child may have Special Educational Needs they should make an appointment with the Special Needs Co-ordinator.
Staff in school are trained, and work alongside other professionals, to develop their skills, knowledge and expertise in specific areas of Special Educational Needs. Support is sought from other agencies where necessary in other to maximise learning potential. The schools policies reflect our commitment to inclusion, safety and well-being of children.
Please get in touch with our SENCO, Miss Donkin (firstname.lastname@example.org), if you have any questions or concerns.
