Needs & Disabilities
Children and young people with Cognition and Learning difficulties, Social, Emotional & Mental Health difficulties, Communication & Interaction Difficulties or a Sensory or Physical Need can struggle in a school environment where the support they receive may not be sufficient to meet their specific need. This can result in low self-esteem, low self-confidence and/or inappropriate behaviours.
Each child, whatever their need, may require a different style of teaching and support. The Pinetree School provides personalised timetables that are tailored to the specific needs of our young people. Each pupil is encouraged to recognise their needs, strengths and abilities in different areas of the curriculum.
SENCO Mr Taylor-Bennett – firstname.lastname@example.org
Our approach to teaching learners with SEND
- Provide differentiated lessons to improve the educational opportunities of all pupils, regardless of ability
- Improve the literacy and numeracy skills of pupils via differentiated lesson plans and literacy and numeracy intervention
- Increase the confidence of students with SEND, encouraging them to be involved in their own provision
- Involve parents at every opportunity to ensure they are aware of all aspects of the special needs provision made for their child
Statement of Special Educational Needs (SEND) or Education Health and Care Plan (EHCP)
If a child currently has a statement of SEND or an Education Health and Care Plan this will continue and be reviewed annually. A child may receive an Education, Health and Care plan following assessments by professionals.
