OFSTED OUTSTANDING PROVIDER

SEND

It is a fundamental aim of our school to help each pupil to develop to their full potential. Each child is unique and within every school there will always be a number of pupils, who for a variety of reasons, are classed as having special educational needs or disabilities. We aim to have a careful consultation with parents, to discuss their child’s particular needs, and to join in partnership with any other agencies which may be involved in the children’s welfare. By working together we can offer the best possible provision for your child.

We have taken a number of steps to ensure that we recognise any child showing signs of a particular need and, if necessary, the child may be placed on the Register of Special Needs and Disabilities. School will endeavour to work closely with parents when a child’s special needs are identified. Progress is carefully monitored and recorded. The Special Educational Needs and Disabilities co-ordinator (Mrs King) will work in close consultation with Miss Pusztai (HT) and teachers and support staff in identifying and assessing and supporting children with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities throughout the school.

Individual Education Plans (I.E.P.s) are drawn up, shared with parents and regularly reviewed. There may be occasions when a child’s particular needs cannot be met from the resources available within the school. In such circumstances, and after review with the Local Authority, it may be decided to apply for an Education Health and Care Plan to ensure specific provision.

The SEN Information Report for schools in the Redcar and Marske Teaching Schools Alliance.

Newcomen Primary School is larger than average primary school and is oversubscribed. The proportion of pupils who have special educational needs and/or disabilities is higher than national average. At Newcomen, pupils are continuing to achieve significantly higher standards than others nationally and well exceed the government’s current floor standards. “There is very little difference in the progress of disadvantaged pupils, most–able pupils, pupils who have special education needs and/or disabilities, and boys and girls.”
