SEN & Disability

Heathmere is an inclusive school. Our vision is that every child with SEND will receive the right provision to achieve their full potential. The school encourages a strong focus on high aspirations and improves outcomes for children with SEND, enabling them to succeed in their education.

At Heathmere Primary School, every teacher is a teacher of every child, including those with special educational needs and disabilities.   

Heathmere’s approach to inclusion

  • Offering inclusive teaching will enable all pupils to make the best progress as early as possible in school
  • To fully adopt the graduated approach to ensure that all pupils with special educational needs and disabilities are identified, assessed and catered for within the school
  • To ensure that high-quality teaching is differentiated for individual pupils and that this is the first step in responding to pupils who have or may have SEND
  • To overcome potential barriers to learning for individuals and groups of pupils so that the curriculum is accessible to all
  • To work in partnership with pupils, parents and carers
  • To work towards inclusion in partnership with other agencies and schools
  • To achieve a high level of staff expertise to meet pupils’ needs
