At Short Wood Primary School we feel strongly that every child should reach or exceed their potential. We are committed to offering an inclusive curriculum to ensure the best possible progress for all of our pupils whatever their needs or abilities. Not all pupils with disabilities have special educational needs and not all pupils with SEN meet the definition of disability but this offer covers all of these pupils.We offer support for pupils with a wide range of special educational needs and disabilities including; visual impairment, hearing impairment, speech language and communication difficulties, ASD, ADHD, ADD, Aspergers, cognition and learning difficulties, physical difficulties and social and emotional difficulties.We consider that the needs of the individual child are ‘key’ to their learning success. All children receive class teacher input via good and outstanding teaching:
Children’s progress is constantly monitored and assessed and careful records are kept. Sometimes we find that a child does not make the progress we expect and when this happens, we talk to parents and appropriate steps are put in place to support the child.
The school will always work in partnership with parents/carers and parents/carers are kept fully informed at every stage once we have identified that their child could benefit from some extra help. This could be for educational, personal and social or physical needs. The support may be short term or long term.
* Also of interest to parents is the Telford and Wrekin’s Local Offer that provides information on services from education, health and social care agencies.
