How do we teach children with SEND?

How do we teach children with SEND?

All pupils at Bramford and Somersham Federation receive Quality First teaching. This means that we provide a varied, inclusive curriculum and employ a range of teaching styles to ensure that all children access a curriculum matched to their needs. We deliver the statutory National Curriculum through a topic based format. We emphasise the importance of writing, reading, maths, social and personal skills with a strong focus on educating the whole child and preparing them for the future.

Quality First teaching has the following characteristics:

  • highly focused lesson design with sharp objectives
  • high demands of pupil involvement and engagement with their learning
  • high levels of interaction for all pupils
  • appropriate use of teacher questioning, modelling and explaining
  • an emphasis on learning through dialogue, with regular opportunities for pupils to talk both individually and in groups
  • an expectation that pupils will accept responsibility for their own learning and work independently
  • regular use of encouragement and authentic praise to engage and motivate pupils.

 

At Bramford and Somersham Federation we aim to be inclusive within the classroom environment. We strive to ensure that our teaching meets the highest standards for all pupils and that work is appropriately differentiated to allow access and challenge for all.

 

The classroom teachers are responsible for the daily education of your child and are supported and advised by the SENDCO where necessary.

Sometimes it may be appropriate to teach your child out of the classroom individually or as part of a small group for a specific intervention designed to accelerate the child’s learning.

 

The individual Support Plans we use enable us to:


·         Use person-centred  inclusion strategies

·         Put learning targets in place for all children on the SEND register.
