All Hertfordshire Local Authority (LA) maintained schools have a similar approach to meeting the needs of pupils with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND) and are supported by the LA to ensure that all pupils, regardless of their specific needs, make the best possible progress in school.
The report complies with Section 69(2) of the Children and Families Act 2014 Regulation 51 & schedule 1 of the Special Educational Needs and Disability Regulations 2014.
All schools are supported to be as inclusive as possible, with the needs of pupils with (SEND) being met in a mainstream setting wherever possible.
Aycliffe Drive Primary School is a fully inclusive mainstream school and our aim is to
- raise the achievement of all children, including those with a learning difficulty, disability, disadvantage or special educational needs;
- recognise and assess additional needs, putting appropriate and timely intervention in place to ensure that everything is done to remove barriers to learning at the earliest opportunity;
- personalise provision to enable all children to achieve their full potential;
- involve parents and carers in the decisions affecting their child’s education;
- seek children’s views at all stages of their education.
In order to achieve these aims we will ensure that:
- all adults have the highest aspirations for every child;
- provision is responsive and well matched to children’s needs;
- extended services provision makes a difference to outcomes for children and their families;
- pupils’ views are used to inform school improvement planning;
- every child is able to access all areas of school life.
