SEND

Special Educational Needs and Disabilities at Mayfield

Here at Mayfield, we strive to ensure that each child reaches their potential. All staff are committed to the inclusion of all pupils.

Our Special Educational Needs Co-ordinator – Mrs K Tyson
SEND Code of Practice 2015 states:
A child or young person has SEN if they have a learning difficulty or disability which calls for special educational provision to be made for him or her. A child of compulsory school age or a young person has a learning difficulty or disability if he or she:
• has a significantly greater difficulty in learning than the majority of others of the same age, or
• has a disability which prevents or hinders him or her from making use of facilities of a kind generally provided for others of the same age in mainstream schools or mainstream post-16 institutions
(Special educational needs and disability code of practice: 0-25 years 2015)  

Intent

At Mayfield Primary School, our intent for Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND) provision is underpinned by a commitment to inclusive education that enables every child to reach their full potential, regardless of their individual needs. Our intent is to create a supportive and nurturing environment where every child feels valued, respected, and empowered to succeed, ensuring that barriers to learning are effectively identified and addressed.

Our curriculum is designed to be accessible and adaptive teaching strategies are incorporated, to meet the needs of all learners, including those with SEND. We strive to provide a broad and balanced curriculum that promotes academic achievement, personal development, and well-being for all children, including those with special educational needs.

Implementation

To ensure the successful implementation of our intent, we adopt a holistic approach to SEND provision that involves collaboration with parents, external agencies, and specialists to create individualised support plans for children with SEND. Our skilled and dedicated staff receive regular training and professional development to enhance their knowledge and skills in meeting the diverse needs of our learners.

We provide a range of interventions, support strategies, and resources tailored to the specific needs of each child with SEND. This includes assistive technology, visual aids, sensory resources, and personalised learning plans to support their academic progress and social development. Regular monitoring, assessment, and review of individual progress are integral to our approach to ensure that interventions are effective and responsive to the changing needs of our learners.

Impact

The impact of our SEND provision is evidenced by the progress and achievements of our learners with special educational needs. Through our effective support and intervention strategies, children with SEND make significant progress academically, socially, and emotionally, narrowing the attainment gap and fostering a sense of belonging and self-confidence within our school community.

Our inclusive ethos and commitment to SEND provision have led to positive outcomes for all learners, creating a culture of respect, understanding, and acceptance within our school. Children with SEND are fully integrated into school life, participating in all aspects of school activities and developing meaningful relationships with their peers.

In conclusion, our SEND provision is driven by a clear intent to promote inclusion, implemented through effective collaboration and personalised support, resulting in a tangible impact on the progress and well-being of all our learners, regardless of their individual needs.
