SEND- Special Educational Needs and/or Disabilities. A child has special educational needs and/or disabilities if they have a learning difficulty and/or disability that means they need special health an/or education support, we shorten this to SEND.
Alderman Primary School is an inclusive rural primary school and we believe that all children should be given the best possible opportunities to reach their full potential. We provide high quality teaching, reasonable adjustments within the classroom and additional interventions to ensure the curriculum is accessible for all children.
As a school we provide support for children in the following broad areas:
Communication and interaction
Cognition and learning
Social, emotional and mental health
Sensory and physical needs
The school's information report and SEND policy provide information on what we provide for children who have additional educational needs or disabilities.
Our Inclusion Co-ordinator, Designated Teacher for Looked After Children and Emotional Wellbeing Lead (Mrs Hempsall) is responsible for overseeing the assessment and provision of all children with SEND. Mrs Hempsall works closely with teaching staff and teaching assistants to ensure that we give all children the best opportunities in school.
Mrs Hempsall currently works part time in our school (1 day a week) so it is easier to make an appointment to see her through the school office on 01945 700 275. If it is urgent and Mrs Hempsall is not in school that day, please speak to Ms. Blyth the Head teacher or your child's class teacher.
Things children have said about their learning:
'I like Maths because teachers support me.'
'I enjoy painting.'
'Basketball is good, I am decent at it.'
'Literacy is my favourite, my confidence has been boosted.'
'I am more confident, I will now share things in class!'
'I have improved my handwriting because I have tried very hard!'
Please find below useful information for parent's of children with a SEND.
Pinpoint Cambridgeshire is run for parents- by parents. They provide help and information to parents and carers of children and young people with additional needs and disabilities.
At Alderman Payne Primary School we have parents that are our very own 'Pinpoint Champions!' If you would like more information or support just let Mrs Hempsall know she will put you in touch with them.
