Every Child Matters at Reedley Primary School
Here at Reedley Primary School, we are committed to meeting the needs of all pupils in our care and ensuring that they make good progress whilst at our school, especially those with Special Educational Needs or barriers to their learning. Every teacher is a teacher of every child including those with SEN. All our pupils have the right to a broad, balanced, relevant and differentiated curriculum. We aim to ensure that all pupils with Special Educational Needs will achieve maximum access to this curriculum and make subsequent progress through the co-operation, understanding and planning skills shared by teachers, support staff, support agencies, parents, governors and children. We aim to provide an inclusive environment where all children are able to participate in a variety of learning activities within the classroom and the wider community.
Team Reedley strives to raise the aspirations and expectations for all children with SEN, providing a focus on outcomes. We believe in providing every possible opportunity to develop the full potential of all children. All pupils are valued and their self-esteem promoted. We work in close partnership with parents/carers who play an active and valued role in their child’s education alongside external services.
We aim to provide targeted support to meet a child's individual needs. This includes working with NHS therapists and consultants, specialist teachers, Educational Psychologists and local support networks. In addition, we are fortunate to have Louise Laycock, an independent Speech and Language Therapist, regularly visiting school. We also receive advice and guidance from specialist staff at Holly Grove School, a primary special school.
