Oxon CE Primary School

Pupils with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities

At Oxon CE Primary School, we seek to provide a supportive learning environment for all children. We strive to offer a curriculum that recognises the needs of every child, supports self-esteem and provides opportunities to fulfil personal potential.

All teachers are responsible for the progress of all the children in their class. When a teacher identifies that a child is making significantly less than expected progress, they work with parents and the Special Educational Needs Co-ordinator (SENCO) to assess whether the child has Special Educational Needs and Disability (SEND). Once a child is identified as having SEND, they are placed at ‘SEND Support ’.

SEND Support takes the form of a four-part cycle through which decisions and actions are reviewed, refined and revised; with a growing understanding of the child’s needs and of what support the child requires in order to secure positive outcomes.

When a child is at ‘SEND Support’, a Pupil Centred Plan is drawn up in discussion with the child, the parents and the class teacher. This short plan is personalised to suit the specific needs of the pupil and may involve input from specialist support agencies. Class teachers work with teaching assistants to plan appropriate provision. Pupil Centred Plans (PCP) are reviewed termly.

Children with more complex needs may have an Education Health Care Plan (EHCP) .  

Pupils with disabilities are admitted to Oxon school in accordance with the Local Authority guidelines and where applicable the SEND code of conduct.
