Provision for pupils with Special Educational Needs
We pride ourselves on our SEND provision here at Rushcroft, we work in partnership with parents and agencies to ensure we provide the very best support for your child. We embrace the fact that every child is different and, therefore, the educational needs of every child are different – this is certainly the case for children with Special Educational Needs.
During the early years of school, when our children are preparing to start school, we carry out visits to nurseries and pre-schools where possible in addition to offering four taster sessions, where children and parents can visit the setting and meet staff. This enables us to get a full and detailed exchange of information so that we are as fully informed as possible. This allows us to assess the need to make adaptations, source and supply additional equipment, engage with relevant agencies and set up regular liaison meetings with parents.
Our school is a barrier free, wheelchair friendly environment. We are a single level school with wide internal and external doors. All the furniture we provide for learning is designed for the age and suitability of the activities we do. We are a friendly school and the teachers are available at the start and end of each day for ‘handovers’ and the sharing of information.
We have a federation SENCo, a person who works in all our 3 schools on all matters related to Special Educational Needs. Miss Heidi Reitze is our SENCo, you can find out much more about her role and our offer as a school by reading the document below.
