At Moorside Primary School and Nursery, we provide an inclusive education for all pupils with a wide range of needs by ensuring that learning is appropriate, fun and sufficiently scaffolded for them to succeed. In October 2018 Ofsted reported that: ‘Support for pupils who have a high level of need is effective because additional adults structure their learning well’, when they visited Moorside Infant School. At Moorside Primary School and Nursery, we see the uniqueness of every child and strive to deliver a curriculum to develop their specific needs. Our intent is for every child to develop the skills and knowledge they need to achieve their full potential as independent learners.
As specified in the Code of Practise 2015 we follow the ‘Assess, Plan, Do, Review’ cycle for children who are not making the progress we would expect.
Through careful observations, detailed assessment and an analysis of progress, staff will identify when a child requires additional support and plan to deliver additional or different provision that will support them to close the gaps in their learning and skills.
We produce an annual report on our work with children with special educational needs or disabilities, alongside our SEND Policy. Please click on the links below to view these:
