We adapt the curriculum and learning environment for pupils with SEN:
At Cockton Hill Infants’ School we strive to provide an inclusive education for all pupils by supporting them all to learn, contribute, and participate in all aspects of school life alongside their peers. As well as the formal requirements of the Early Years Foundation Stage and the National Curriculum, we also provide a range of additional opportunities to enrich the experiences of our children. We want our children to develop qualities that are essential for their life long learning such as being resilient, willing to take risks and make mistakes.
Some of the approaches we may take to achieve this are:
- Differentiated teaching.
- Individualised learning plans or modifying the curriculum based on a child’s individual needs.
- Using a range of materials and resources for a pupils’ needs.
- Additional support in class.
- Access to other learning environments such as our sensory room or accessing the EYFS classrooms when appropriate.
- Access to technology.
- Making the learning environment accessible.
- Ensure that all staff are aware of the needs of all children, and have appropriate training to allow them to sensitively meet these.
At Cockton Hill Infants’ School we make sure that all children are able to participate in activities outside the class as well as extra curricular activities by making reasonable adjustments. This may include seeking advice or support or completing appropriate risk assessments. We provide suitable transport as necessary and make any further adaptations to ensure the safety of all children.
More details on how we adapt information, our environment and curriculum can be found in the Accessibility Plan which you ca find in the School Policies section of our website.
