Claremont’ s SEN vision is to provide facilities for a happy, safe, nurturing and inclusive environment where ALL children are supported, valued, inspired and challenged, so they may flourish to achieve their full potential irrespective of ability or behaviour.
Claremont school is committed to promote education and welfare of children through positive promotion of equality, challenging bullying and stereotypes. We aim to create an environment which champions respect for all. At all levels the School is an inclusive community - we believe that diversity is a strength, which
should be respected and celebrated by all those who learn, teach and visit here.
Universal provision – All teachers are teachers of SEN
At Claremont our lessons are differentiated: this can be summarised simply as a recognition of walkers, joggers and runners in any given session. Teachers spell out what the walkers need to do and that everyone aims to achieve this, the joggers will go on to the second layer and it is made clear that most are expected to achieve this. The runners will reach the third layer of differentiation, and a few will be told they are expected to get there (see Learning and Teaching Policy). Different classes use different labels for these layers of work. Most children push
themselves to achieve in these circumstances and many will be asking ‘what the
sprint challenge is?’.
At Claremont we ensure high quality provision within mainstream lessons which is an important factor in helping pupils with special needs make good progress alongside their peers.
Quality first teaching draws on a repertoire of teaching strategies and techniques that are closely matched to the specified learning objectives and the particular needs of the children in the class. The regular progress reviews, PPP and differentiation in the classroom all help pupils overcome some of the barriers to learning. Teachers will discuss these plans with the parent/carer if a pupil's progress is less than expected, or it is thought that a pupil might have learning blocks.
If you have any concerns about your child, please talk to their class teacher in the first instance. The SENCo can be contacted on 01892 554690 or via email firstname.lastname@example.org
