How do we cater for children with SEN?
In keeping with our inclusive ethos, we try to ensure that children receive support and intervention within class wherever possible. This support may take the form of teacher or teaching assistant support on a 1:1 or small group basis. It may also take the form of differentiated or hands-on tasks.
Some interventions do have to be undertaken out of the classroom and these will be integrated into the school day in order to minimise disruption to children’s learning. Interventions that are undertaken out of the classroom are speech and language plans, rehabilitation work and also booster sessions.
What can Christ Church Primary School and Bury LA offer to children with SEN?
In order to support parents of children with SEN, our school is required to produce an SEN Information Report. This report details information about what is on offer for parents and children with SEN at our school.
Our SEN Information Report forms part of Bury’s Local offer and can be accessed below.
If you have any queries or would like any further information, either general or specific, please do not hesitate to contact Miss Emma Sutton our SENCo via the school office.
