SEN Information Report – The Ladybridge Primary School Offer
At Ladybridge Primary school we believe that all children irrespective of gender, race, faith, disability and social status have the right to an education in which they can flourish and ‘be the best that they can be’. As an inclusive school we provide the opportunities to acquire new skills, knowledge and understanding. This can be most effectively achieved through quality teaching, in which stimulating and challenging activities are matched to the individual levels of ability of the children. Children are encouraged to be self -motivated; to adopt a positive attitude to learning and to take responsibility for the choices they make.
While the staff of Ladybridge Primary School strive to provide these opportunities, we believe that a child’s education is not the sole responsibility of the school but a partnership between staff, parents and professionals. All parents play a valuable part in their child’s education. If your child continues to work at a level well below their peers or makes little progress, despite accessing interventions and quality teaching, they may be identified as having Special Educational Needs.
All our classes are supported by teaching assistants and pupils are also offered small group work or catch up programmes if needed. Some pupils are supported to develop their social skills or to improve their emotional well-being through work with our Learning Mentor.
This School offer describes how we support pupils with Special Educational Needs at Ladybridge Primary School.
In order to make our offer for Ladybridge Primary School accessible and user friendly, we have structured the information around a set of Frequently Asked Questions , firstly referring to our Mainstream provision and, secondly, our Resourced provision.
