At Littlemoor Primary School we aim to maximise children’s achievement by removing barriers to learning through a creative, inclusive curriculum delivered in a safe, stimulating environment. As a primary school, we believe we have a key role in society in combating discrimination and promoting fairness, justice and equality through our teaching and in the role models that we offer.
Our Vision & Ethos
At Littlemoor Primary School, we believe passionately in the importance of inclusion and equality for all children and adults, and strive to ensure that these values are at the heart of our SEND practices.
We will always involve parents and children in key decisions, as well as planning and reviewing progress; we know that parents are the first educators of their child and that we need their knowledge and co-operation to plan effectively.
We know that the earlier we identify SEND and provide support, the more successful our children will be.
We are committed to providing expert support and resources for children with SEND to fulfil their individual potential.
Our starting point is to guarantee a whole -school approach to providing for the needs of children with SEND. In other words, we make sure that all staff have the knowledge and skills to support all children, including those with SEND, throughout our School.
How we learn from others
We are a learning community and believe that it is important to work with other schools to make sure that our SEND knowledge, expertise and skills are up to date. We are also committed to supporting the next generation of teachers to follow our good practice: we run training sessions for new teachers in Camden and for trainee teachers through the Schools Direct scheme. In 2014, we held a training day on Inclusion and SEND at our School for teachers from the leading Institute of Education. Their feedback was overwhelmingly positive, for example commenting on the;
– Sensitivity and empathy of inclusion support staff
– How small interventions can really remove barriers to learning
Our Inclusion Manager attends the Local Authority SENDCO Forum, which keeps all schools up to date with national developments and local projects on inclusion.
Introduction to SEND at Littlemoor Primary School
Our School’s SEND Information Report explains what we offer children and young people with special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEND) throughout their time with us. It explains how we support them on to the next stage of their education.
You may also want to read our SEND policy, a document that gives more detail about our statutory duties and day to day procedures – for example how we plan the most effective support for children with special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEND) and how we review their progress.
