Special Educational Needs & Disability (SEND)

At Jacksdale Primary and Nursery School we work hard to recognise difference and maximise potential for all our pupils. We are experienced in supporting pupils with a range of needs. All pupils are welcomed into the supportive arms of our lovely school. We aim to provide every child with a broad and balanced education, no matter what their level of need. This is informed by our school values and is based on the National Curriculum, in line with the Special Educational Needs Code of Practice.

Every child at Jacksdale Primary and Nursery School is valued and makes a valuable contribution to school life. We want them to be the very best that they can be.

In SEND we aim to:

* Motivate and inspire children to have a love of learning.

* Equip children to meet the changes and challenges in their life ahead.

* Make sure that every child reaches their full potential.

*Support pupils in the development of life long skills.

*Work alongside parents, carers & outside professionals to form a strong team around the child.

The Graduated Response is the term we used to describe the process of assessing, planning, doing & reviewing what progress our children have made each term. All teachers at our school contribute to our Graduated Response.  We understand that all children learn differently and therefore an approach which works for one child may not work for another. Through use of the Graduated Response, the needs of each child can be assessed and appropriate actions can be planned. Read the documents above to find out more about the Graduated Response at Jacksdale Primary School.

We listen carefully to parents and children to improve provision:
