SEN

Moorlands Primary School works to embed an inclusive ethos to allow every pupil to achieve their potential. To do this, the school takes progressive steps to support individual needs (see Special Educational Needs flowchart).

 

Firstly, we believe high quality teaching is vital and Moorlands Primary School has an in-depth system to support staff to deliver this and monitor progress of all pupils; however, for some children, there may be times when further additional support is needed.

 

To discuss this further, please speak to Class Teachers or the Moorlands SENCo is available at the SEN workshop every Monday 2:30-3pm.  

 

Miss Laura Smith - SENco lead.

What do we offer at Moorlands?

 

At times, we may give small group or 1:1 support to your child.  This may be for a few sessions or may be long term.  We work hard to support the needs of all children at Moorlands and you may hear some interventions such as the ones outlined below:

 

Building Blox

Aim: To support children to build their resilience and the capacity to recover quickly from difficulties.  It supports their character development and their ability to bounce back.

Building Blox is a 12 week programme and can be tailored to the characteristics of the group or individual.

This typically consists of 1 session per week and is led by Mrs Smith.

 

TITAN

TITAN is an initiative to help children, young people and adults achieve goals, learn and embed new life-skills and nurture healthy routines.  The aim is for the pupil to become a more independent individual and support them with everyday life.

This typically consists of 1 session per week and is led by Mrs Smith.

 

Play Therapy

These are confidential 1:1 sessions where the children express themselves through play.  In these sessions, a trusting relationship is developed with the therapist.  This is led by an external therapist; parental permission is required for this intervention.

At different times in their school career, a child or young person may have a special educational need. The Code of Practice (CoP) September 2015 0 -25 defines SEND as:

“A child or young person may have SEN if they have a learning difficulty or disability which calls for special educational provision to be made for them. A child of compulsory school age or a person has a learning difficulty or disability if they:
1. have a significant greater difficulty in learning than the majority of others of the same age: or
2. have a disability which prevents or hinders them from making use of educational facilities of a kind generally provided for others of the same age in mainstream schools mainstream post – 16 institutions.”
