Broomfield school is a caring school which aims to promote mutual respect and understanding and provide an excellent education for all its pupils. Broomfield believes that all children and young people should be equally valued and therefore will do all we can to promote equality of opportunity and excellent outcomes, and to help develop a learning environment where all children and young people can flourish and feel safe.
All young people should have access to a broad, balanced and relevant curriculum, with teaching and learning strategies that maximise achievement and prevent failure by removing barriers to learning and providing access to a wide range of learning challenges.
We will ensure that every pupil with special educational needs:
is fully included in Broomfield school life regardless of their particular special educational need,
is a successful learner,
is supported to learn at a pace appropriate to his or her abilities and development,
has their strengths and capabilities recognised and valued.
Broomfield School has a clear approach to identifying and responding to SEN. All teachers at Broomfield are responsible for identifying pupils with SEND and, in collaboration with the Special Education Needs Co-ordinator (SENCO), will ensure that those pupils requiring different or additional support are identified.
On entry to Broomfield School every pupil’s attainment is initially assessed in order to ensure continuity of learning. This may show us pupils who require additional class-based interventions and/or further assessment. Assessments include subject-based assessments; CAT (Cognitive Ability Tests); Key Stage 2 results and national reading tests.
The SENCO will also have detailed conversations with feeder primary-schools and Health Care professionals as necessary. Information gained is used to shape the pupil’s curriculum and pastoral provision in the first few months. This ensures that pupils have opportunities to demonstrate knowledge and understanding.
