Special educational needs
The Schools of St Alphege are inclusive schools and we are proud of the diversity within our school community. Within the collaborative there is expertise and training of staff in relation to SEND pupils.
Miss Stanion, our SENDCo, has obtained the accredited ‘National Award for SEND Co-ordination.
Our Christian School Vision is central to all we do and underpins all aspects inclusion:
‘Let the children come to me’ – We value Children. We welcome and cherish every child. School staff are child centred and willing to go the extra mile for everyone at the school. Every individual will feel valued and loved by God. The children have an equally important role and contribution to make.
‘and do not stop them’ – We are inclusive and adaptable. We make the curriculum and God accessible to all. We want to see the school through the eyes of a child and in all matters ask how this will impact upon them.
We value our partnership with parents. Termly reviews for SEND Support Children and statemented/EHCP pupils occur with the SENDCo. Those at “Class Support” meet with the class teacher to discuss targets. Parents are encouraged to attend termly informal coffee mornings hosted at the Infant School.
Where appropriate staff of both schools within the Federation signpost parents to the Special Educational Needs and Disability Information Advice and Support Service (SENDIAS).
