Inclusion and SEND
Ensuring that every child gets the best education possible, means that we work hard to support and address individual learning needs. More information about how we do this can be found in our SEN and Inclusion Policy, in the policies section of the website.
Equally, feel free to contact our SENCO (Special Educational Needs and Disabilities Coordinator), Mrs Sarah Clarke, who will be able to answer any questions you may have. Sarah is a teacher based at Kirkstead Junior Academy but works across all three of our academies in her SENCO role.
At Pinxton Village Academies, teachers plan an engaging curriculum to meet the needs of learners. All activities are planned with each child's development and progress as the focus. Each classroom has a range of resources designed to support children to progress independently, enabling children to take ownership of their learning and development.
If a child is considered to have an additional need, their class teacher, with support from the SENCO, will plan for the child to receive support to overcome their specific barrier. Parents will be informed and will be asked to contribute to this planning.
Some of the provision specific to supporting children with additional needs is detailed below. However, all children are different and their individual needs will be considered and planned for appropriately. All children identified as having an additional need will be included on our provision map which will document the specific activities designed to overcome the identified barrier.
