SEND in the Curriculum
At Stepney Greencoat we value each child as an individual and recognize that SEND reflects a wide range of needs. We encourage learning through a broad and balanced curriculum, which meets each learner at their point of need.
Here are some of the many ways that we support pupils with special educational needs in our school:
- Quality first teaching and differentiation in every classroom
- Practical resources to support additional needs inside and outside the classroom
- Dedicated Nurture Space for individualised support outside of the classroom environment
- Rich opportunities for speaking, listening and drama to develop ideas
- Partnerships with external specialists including Phoenix Outreach Team, Educational Psychologists, Children’s and Adolescent Mental Health Service (CAMHS), Speech and Language Therapists and Occupational Therapists
- Individual education plans where necessary
- Small adult led focus groups or 1:1 teaching
- Ramps, disabled toilet and wheelchair accessibility
- Referrals to occupational therapy or physiotherapy services
- Extensive health care plans drawn up by the school nursing team for key children
- Key Stage 1 parent and child group that focus on strategies for learning number facts and phonics
- Visual communication strategies
- Elsa (Emotional Literacy Support Assistant) trained staff member
- Regular PSHCE teaching promoting emotional literacy, conflict resolution skills and self-awareness
- Zones of Regulation help our pupils to assess their own readiness for learning and helps them to be aware of when they may need support
- Termly assessment plans to review targets for children
- Sensory Circuits allows pupils who need time to regulate after stimulating periods such as break time to refocus their attention with specially designed activities before re-entering their class
