Inclusion takes into account the needs of all pupils to ensure they have full access to learning. These needs may include children with a physical disability, children with a medical condition, children with learning difficulties, children who are very able, children who have English as an additional language, children who have issues with their behaviour or children with socia, emotional or mental health needs.
Special Educational Needs (SEN) Click here for SEND Offer Form
Children are regarded as having Special Educational Needs if they are having difficulty accessing the curriculum or if he/she is not reaching his/her expected potential. Our aim is to meet the needs of every individual child. Therefore, for a child with Special Educational Needs we would provide appropriate individualised support.
The class teacher and our own Inclusion Leader plan together to give children specific targets to work towards and they are shared with parents. If the children do not progress as expected we involve outside agencies for further assessment, advice or support.
Our Educational Psychologist visits the school on a regular basis and may be contacted through the school should you wish to discuss any matter relating to learning difficulties.
Speech and Language Therapist
The school employs a speech and language therapist to work and support children with specific communication difficulties. These children are identified by the Inclusion Leader according to their need.
The school is committed to providing the best opportunities for all of our pupils. Our Art Therapist works with some identified children to support them and enhance their learning opportunities
At Mayespark Primary School we have high expectations of children’s behaviour to ensure that every child achieves his or her full potential. Our aim is to develop self-discipline. We have school rules, rewards and consequences. Positive behaviour is rewarded and there are sanctions for unacceptable behaviour.
We expect parents’ support, as it is essential that home and school work closely together. High standards of behaviour are expected of everyone. In particular, bullying, bad language and racist behaviour are not tolerated at Mayespark.
