SEND

 

The SENCOs for Greenwood School are Mrs Lisa Grice lgrice@greenwoodprimary.org.uk (KS1) and Miss Anneka Appleby aappleby@greenwoodprimary.org.uk (KS2).

 

At Greenwood Primary and Nursery School we provide education for all pupils through a variety of access strategies including appropriate differentiation, resources, support and facilities as necessary. All pupils’ individual needs are met and we actively remove barriers to learning to accommodate and value all pupils’ diversity.

 

All pupils are entitled to receive, within a suitable peer group, a broad, balanced and relevant curriculum that will ensure progression. The school will, within the context of services available, seek the relevant support and advice from the LEA, in order to facilitate pupils’ inclusion.

 

Aims   At Greenwood Primary and Nursery School we aim to:

 

  • To include all pupils in the full life of the school.
  • To raise aspirations and attainment of all children in school.
  • To continue to raise staff awareness of inclusion by ongoing staff development and training.
  • To maximise the learning potential of every child and raise educational attainment for all.
  • To promote the personal, social, moral and cultural development of all children.
  • To recognise and celebrate the progress and achievements that all members of the educational community make.
  • To develop inclusive practices throughout the educational community and so to promote equality of access and opportunity for all learners.
  • To ensure that resources for SEND are closely matched to needs.
  • To work together with all partners in the education of the pupil.
  • To continuously monitor and evaluate the success of our policy.

During this unsettling time, you may wish to share these stories with your children.

 

 

                      

         

 

Children thrive on routine so here is some advice to help you and your family to stay in a routine whilst staying at home.

Here is a useful guide for children about the Corona Virus.    

 

Information for parents / carers of children and young people with SEND is now available on the Nottinghamshire SEND Local Offer at the following link: SEND Local Offer - Coronavirus information for parents and carers.

There could be some useful advice for what is available for you in the local area at this difficult time.

 

If your child is in receipt of Speech and Language, you may wish you have a look here for support and advice. 

We have had the opportunity to work closely with Marie House (Educational Psychologist).  As part of the work we have completed together Marie has kindly made a video which looks at emotions and strategies to support children with their emotions.   Click on the link below to watch the video (approx. 30 minutes)

 

We hope you find this useful
