Special Education Needs and Disabilities (SEND)

We value the ability and success of all students. We are all dedicated to providing the best possible environment for learning.

We set high standards at Ivanhoe to ensure students receive a positive educational experience and to enrich the life of each and every child, including children with SEND. At the heart of how we educate our students is Quality First Teaching, which involves differentiating lessons and adapting teaching styles to suit individual pupil’s needs, to overcome their barriers to learning.

For all children with SEND;support and advice is available from the school SENDCO, Learning mentors,and the Student Support Team. The school seeks advice and guidance from other professionals and involves them in the planning and delivery of support for pupils with SEND. 

 

To support students with SEND, and in particular those students with an EHCP (Education Health Care Plan)

  • There are regular meetings with parents. Information from these meetings and specialist advice is linked through SIMs in order to prompt all staff on how to support each child with SEND on an individual basis.
  • Teaching assistant support will be devolved to pupils to address needs if required.
  • Auditory and/or visual requirements will be provided for as required e.g.. visualiser and seating in class.
