SEN

Forest of Galtres Anglican Methodist Primary School aims to provide a caring and supportive environment where every child matters. All pupils are valued equally and are given the opportunity to achieve the very best they can. Sometimes children need additional support for some or all of their time at school.

All pupils at Forest of Galtres Anglican Methodist Primary School receive quality first teaching. This means that a range of teaching styles and approaches are used and that appropriate learning objectives are set for all children with a curriculum matched to their needs.

Children have access to different types of support in lessons, and often work in small groups or one to one with a Teacher or Teaching Assistant. Our school’s values expect that all pupils are actively included in a wide range of curriculum and extra-curricular activities. Pupils with SEN are equally represented in positions of responsibility such as the School Council.

 

Our school's Inclusion Lead is Mrs Kirsty Mills, who works alongside Mrs Sarah Cope (the Hope Learning Trust SEND Lead) and the Headteacher to ensure that children with additional needs receive the support they need.  They report on the impact of this work and pupil outcomes to the school's Governing Body.  The governor with responsibility for SEND is Mrs Sue Van Hout.

This year our school is working in collaboration with the Driver Youth Trust - a national charity dedicated to improving the life chances of children and young people, with a focus on those with literacy difficulties and who may have SEND. In collaboration between DYT, we have adopted the Drive for Literacy model that addresses the needs of those who struggle with literacy and may be dyslexic. Our school leadership, whole school and key staff (SEND/Literacy Leads) have access to Drive for Literacy workshops, resources and parent support and advice to ensure pupils with literacy difficulties are able to access the curriculum and experience success as learners. More information on this model, which includes useful information and free resources for parents and schools can be found at www.driveryouthtrust.com and on Twitter @DriverTrust.
