Welcome to our SEND information report which is part of the Southwark Local Offer for learners with Special Educational Needs and/or disabilities (SEND). In accordance with the Children and Families Bill 2014, all governing bodies of maintained schools and maintained nursery schools and the proprietors of academy schools have a legal duty to publish information on their website about the implementation of the governing body’s policy for pupils with SEND. This information will be updated every year. You can find details of The Children and Families Bill 2014 here.
Our approach to teaching learners with SEND
Bessemer Grange Primary School is an inclusive school and we ensure through our policies and practice that all pupils are included in all aspects of school life. We aim to encourage children regardless of their SEN or disability to make the best possible progress in school. The school provides a high standard of teaching and learning and we aim to ensure that all children access a rich and diverse curriculum in order to develop independent learning and the skills they will need for life both within school and in the local and wider environment.
We aim to provide a safe, happy and supportive environment where children thrive in all aspects of their learning. We know that the most effective learning takes place when children are confident and enjoy their learning. We appreciate the importance of high self-esteem in the learning process. The most effective learning environment is where children believe in themselves and their own capabilities and Bessemer Grange endeavours to reinforce these qualities in all children
Objectives of our SEND provision
We aim to:-
Have your say
Bessemer Grange Primary School firmly believes in developing a strong partnership with parents/carers and that this will enable children and young people with SEND to achieve their potential. The school recognises that parents/carers have a unique overview of their child’s needs and how best to support them, and that this gives them a key role in the partnership. Parents/carers hold key information and have a critical role to play in their children’s education.
This report sets out our annual offer to children with SEND, but to be effective it needs the views of all parents/carers, learners, governors and staff. So please engage with our annual process to ‘assess plan, do and review’ provision for SEND and contact any of the people below with your views.
