SEN (School Local Offer)

Inclusive Learning Statement

At Gordonbrock School, alongside quality first teaching and a broad and rich curriculum offer, we may provide additional and different provision in order to support children with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND). Our Inclusion team will oversee the assessment and support of all school based interventions. The Deputy Head of Inclusion manages the Inclusion team and coordinates with the SENDCo to liaise with external professionals, ensuring appropriate support and interventions are implemented and reviewed.

All interventions and provisions provided are personalised in order to ensure highly differentiated curriculum support. Alongside this, we also use rigorous systems to monitor pupil progress, aid academic and personal achievement and remove any barriers to learning. Our staff follow tailored and continuous professional development programmes, in order to aid a structured whole school approach to learning.

We also run a wellbeing programme for staff. This programme helps us to develop and sustain a healthy and supportive working environment for both staff and children to work and learn in. In order to foster a culture of lifelong learning, curiosity and independent living skills in all of our learners, we may run alongside our universal curriculum.

Caveat and Disclaimer: due to the personalised and highly differentiated nature of our support for learners with SEND, the programmes listed below are subject to change.  Not every intervention will be available to every child with SEND. Allocation of specialist services and intervention will be dependent on need, funding and specialist teacher/service availability.
