Special Educational Needs and Disabilities at Lightmoor
Here at Lightmoor we have the whole school ethos that ‘every teacher in our school is a teacher of SEND’.
We have the vision that all children, with or without special educational needs and disabilities ,will be included fully in the school environment. We work with staff and pupils closely to ensure that our curriculum is ambitious for all.
When a pupil is identified as having a Special Educational Need or Disability we put effective provision in place and ensure that all barriers to learning are removed. Class work is pitched at an appropriate level so that all children are able to access it according to their specific needs. Where appropriate the school timetable is modified for individual pupils to meet their specific needs. Regular assessment and using Assess, Plan, Do, Review cycles informs changes to a child or young person's SEN support. This enables teachers to plan to meet the specific needs.
Pupils who have special educational needs and/or disabilities also achieve well and make good progress towards their individualised learning targets. The expert support and intervention programmes provided by teachers and highly skilled teaching assistants are very effective in helping pupils who have additional learning needs.
SEND at Lightmoor is currently led by Mrs Siddons and Mrs Cowan
