Our Inclusive Schools 

Our aim is to realise the potential of all our children by addressing their individual needs. We strive to ensure children at our schools are not being discriminated against because of physical disability, national origin, language, religion or gender. 

The needs of highly able pupils are identified and they are encouraged to develop their skills through the challenging, yet supportive curriculum. Joint activities with other schools are utilised to provide different and extended learning opportunities wherever possible. 

Children with special educational needs (those that require different and additional educational provision) are very well supported by our school and we involve parents as essential partners in their education. Quality First teaching with differentiated planning, a range of teaching methods and class organisation are used to ensure our school is inclusive to all. 

Our school provides an Individual Provision Map (IPM) for all children with a special educational need and reviews them termly to evaluate progress towards, and achievement of, specific targets. Children may also be supported by small group intervention programs led by our experienced inclusion team. 

We have a dedicated, non-teaching SENCO, employed to lead SEND across all schools and work closely with families, children, staff and outside agencies to provide the best possible opportunities and learning experience for all. 

Our school Special Educational Needs policy is available on our website and from the school. Please do not hesitate to contact the school should you have any queries, issues or concerns. 

Local offer for special educational needs and disabilities

Every Local Authority is required to publish information about services that are available in their area for children and young people from birth to 25 who have Special Educational Needs and/or disabilities (SEND) and also services outside the area that children and young people can use. This is known as the Local Offer.

Information on North Yorkshire County Council’s local offer can be found by clicking this link.

All schools are required to complete an SEND Information Report that will contribute to the local offer and briefly detail the school’s provision.  Click this link to read our latest SEND report SEND Information Report 2022
