"Pupils including those with SEND and EAL, make excellent progress from their starting points" ISI 2022
At Kingshott, Special Educational Needs and/or Disabilities (SEND) refer to any circumstances resulting in an individual pupil requiring additional or different help in order to take full advantage of the educational opportunities offered to pupils of the same age. We believe that pupils have individual needs and that the whole school community has a responsibility for meeting these needs, including keeping children safe and promoting their welfare. We value the abilities and achievements of all our pupils, and are committed to providing the best possible learning environment so that everyone can reach their full potential.
Range of Provision
The main methods of provision are:
- Weekly Literacy sessions in small groups with Learning Support staff, to target reading and/or spelling skills, usually held during registration and assembly time.
- One-to-one, paired or group teaching of pupils who have SEN who require an individual, cumulative, multisensory teaching programme. This is on a withdrawal basis and is taught by the Learning Support staff.
- In-class support from a Learning Support teacher or Teaching Assistant.
- Once or twice weekly typing sessions. During these times, usually held in the morning before school, pupils work on specific a touch typing programme developing their touch typing skills
