SEND AND INCLUSION

At Millfields Primary School, the heart of our belief is that everyone is included. This means that all pupils, and particularly pupils with special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEND), learn and enjoy school together. We are an inclusive school that fully complies with the requirements outlined in the Special Educational Needs Code of Practice (2015).

All children, including those with special needs, learn best in a supportive environment where their self-confidence, independence, and talents are encouraged. Teachers plan to meet the needs of pupils of all abilities. Where necessary, they will work with the Special Educational Needs & Disability Coordinator (SENDCo) to plan individual plans for those with specific learning difficulties. Specialist advice will be sought when needed and regular meetings are held with teachers and other professionals; parents and pupils are included wherever possible. We plan small, measurable, achievable, realistic targets (SMART) to help children to progress.
