Every child has the right to an exciting and relevant curriculum that helps them to achieve their full potential. All children have different needs at different times throughout their school lives. All staff in the school are aware of the need to identify and support children with Special Educational Needs.
Inclusion in our school means that we actively create a community where we recognise and affirm the value and dignity of every child, staff member and parent. We provide everyone with the means and opportunity to develop their potential intellectually, emotionally, physically, socially and spiritually. We aim to raise the aspirations of and expectations for all pupils with SEN with a focus on their outcomes.
Special Educational Needs (SEN) provision is integral with all subject areas and all aspects of school life, with particular relevance for literacy, numeracy and associated skills.
In establishing guidance that applies national and local expectations to our practice we aim to offer pupils a structured, accessible, appropriate and varied experience of the curriculum. We do this by making special provision, if needed, with differentiated planning, target setting and assessment.
The school aims to meet the needs of pupils with SEN to enable them to:
Use literacy, numeracy and communication skills in order to learn independently (Bailiwick of Guernsey Curriculum Statement 2008)
Achieve to the best of their ability
Make informed choices and decisions (Bailiwick of Guernsey Curriculum Statement 2008)
Become effective, self-reliant contributors able to communicate in different ways and in different settings (Bailiwick of Guernsey Curriculum Statement 2008)
Our commitment to Christ’s ministry requires us to recognise the uniqueness of each person. A sensitive response to the unique needs of every child is at the core of our work
