At Eversley we welcome pupils with Special Educational Needs and make every effort to support them. All our classes are fully inclusive and we have high expectations for all our pupils, including those with SEND. Every child is valued and given support according to their needs. By nurturing the whole child and building self-esteem, confidence grows and children acquire the necessary skills to become responsible young people. Working in partnership with parents, all staff encourage children to develop a love of learning, to aspire to achieve their best and support them to succeed.
The Inclusion Manager, class teacher, parents and the pupil themselves (if they are able to) will work together to decide on action required to support the pupil with access to the curriculum. This may involve any of the following: providing additional resources, adapting materials, group or individual support and withdrawal intervention programmes. We recognise that each child is a unique individual and we aim to provide support in a sensitive, caring and inclusive manner.
We receive additional guidance and support from outside agencies including the Speech and Language Service, Behaviour Support Service, Educational Psychology Service, Education Welfare Service and work in close partnership with these agencies. We also ensure continuity by establishing contact with pre-schools and secondary schools for identified pupils.
