At Kidmore End CE School, we are committed to providing enjoyable, engaging and stimulating learning experiences which will enable all pupils to be successful, regardless of their age, gender, disability, ethnicity or social group.
Special Educational Needs
We follow the Oxfordshire Guidelines for Learning Support in line with the National Code of Practice for the identification and assessment of Special Educational Needs. Pupils who are identified as having Special Educational Needs may be supported on an individual basis, in small groups or within the class through the differentiation (scaffolding) of the curriculum.
Our SENCO, Mrs Rebecca Bickerton, works with class teachers and other agencies e.g. The Visual and Hearing Impairment teams, the Sensory Team, Occupational and Speech and Language Therapists, support teachers and Educational Psychologists, to identify pupils’ special educational needs and advise class teachers and parents. A team of teaching assistants work under the direction of the SENCO, leaders and class teachers to support pupils’ learning in the classroom.
Provision for Disabled Pupils
Kidmore End CE School is committed to ensuring equality of education and opportunity for disabled pupils, staff and all who use the school. We believe that diversity is a strength which should be respected and celebrated by all those who learn, teach and visit the school. All pupils with a physical disability and learning difficulties are made to feel very welcome by the school. Every attempt is made to fully meet their needs and ensure that, as far as possible, they have full access to the curriculum offered at Kidmore End CE Primary School.
