St Botolphs CE Academy is an inclusive academy. We ensure that pupils are included in all aspects of learning and school life throughout our school.
From time to time some children require additional support for a set period of time to help them catch-up with their classmates or during a period of adjustment. The decision to do this is made by the school and is based on a variety of factors including academic progress, and/or assessments carried out by the SENCO, Class Teacher, teaching staff or other professionals. It may also be based on ensuring children have a smooth transition into school or require support when going through significant change either at home or school. Parents/carers will be informed when this happens.
Some children will require support for a longer period of time to ensure they can access the curriculum effectively and be included fully in classroom learning and school events. Support will be planned by school staff and where appropriate by external professionals. Parents/carers will be kept informed about this support
Children who require support due to English as an addditional language are not considered SEND pupils but as they may require additional support their needs are reflected in our local offer.
Our Local Offer describes the range of provision and support available to support identified children as and when appropriate. This Offer is subject to change depending on budgetary constraints and policy review.
Our SENDCo is Mrs H Shepherd
