Special Educational Needs and Disabilities Local Offer

Support for children and young people with SEN and disabilities

At Rushcombe First School, we aspire for all children to thrive and develop within a stimulating and supportive environment. We recognise the importance of nurturing the development of the whole child, doing all we can to enable each individual to participate fully within the many aspects of school life. We are committed to providing an inclusive curriculum, aiming for every child to achieve their potential, whatever their needs or abilities. At Rushcombe First School, we aim to: • Provide learning experiences, which are suitably challenging for all children, responding to their diverse range of needs. • Do all we can to overcome potential barriers to learning for individuals and groups of children. Teachers plan and deliver learning opportunities, taking consideration of the range of needs within their class. They use differentiation and a range of materials to ensure that each child makes progress. We aim to support children with SEND by understanding their needs and addressing them. When providing for these needs, children may require additional support in the form of targeted small group work or in some instances individual teaching. We aim for all children with special educational needs to achieve their potential and to develop as confident individuals.

See our school's SEND policy and information report.
Some activities and family support services listed in our directory may be cancelled, postponed, or running in a different way due to coronavirus restrictions. Please contact providers to check for information about any changes.
