Flourishing Through Friendship
Our aim is to provide an inspirational education for the children and families of Stilton in which every child is valued and nurtured, regardless of their gender, ethnicity or economic background so that they aspire, flourish and achieve their full potential.
SENDCo: Mrs Nicole Evans-Lee (email@example.com)
Stilton Church of England Primary Academy is committed to ensuring it consistently maximises and improves its outcomes for children with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND) in line with the latest guidance for delivering excellence within the 0-25 SEND Code of Practice.
This work ensures that our provision consistently meets and often exceeds the requirements on teaching, curriculum and wider policies.
This section contains information about our philosophy for doing this, along with details of our core and local offers, delivered through working in close partnership with our parents and local Education, Health & care providers.
SEND mission statement
"The things that make me different are the things that make me.’
A. A. Milne, Winnie the Pooh
At Stilton Church of England Primary Academy, our mission is to support all children to achieve the best possible educational and wider outcomes so that they can reach their aspirations and make a successful transition into adulthood.
All staff at Stilton Primary are united in our belief that in order to achieve this, we must endeavour to remove any barriers to learning so that every child can access their learning and make progress.
We also value the importance of ensuring that all children with SEND develop as much independence as possible in order to support their development, confidence, resilience and ability to self-scaffold.
This involves high quality teaching and provision that is differentiated and personalised and will meet the needs of the individual. From early identification, children with SEND will receive high quality teaching, support strategies and interventions tailored to their individual needs, which will enable them to achieve their full potential.
We recognise that every teacher is responsible and accountable for all children in their class wherever or with whomever the children are working and fully agree that:
‘High quality teaching that is differentiated and personalised will meet the individual needs of the majority of children and young people. Some... need educational provision that is additional or different from this... Special educational provision is underpinned by high quality teaching and is compromised by anything less.’
SEN Code of Practice, 2014 (p.25)
We also recognise there may be occasions where, having made all possible reasonable adjustments, it is evident that the needs of a particular child simply cannot be met within our inclusive environment. In such a situation, the child's needs will always come first and we will work closely with our partners to proactively source the very best educational provision for the needs of the individual concerned.
Parents/Carers are able to find out more information about Special Educational Needs and Disabilities at Cambridgeshire’s The Local Offer. The local offer is a 'front door' to information from education, health and social care about the provision that is available for children and young people with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND) and their families.
