At Glade Primary School, our intent is to create provision for Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND) that promotes inclusivity, provides personalised support, and ensures every child reaches their full potential. Our commitment is to foster a culture of acceptance and understanding, where all learners are valued and have equal access to high-quality education.

We strive to understand and meet the individual needs of each child with SEND, working collaboratively with parents, carers, and external agencies. Our overarching aim is to support our pupils in becoming confident and independent learners who are well-prepared for their future education and life beyond school.




Leadership and Management

The leadership team at Glade Primary School demonstrates a clear vision and high expectations for SEND provision, embedding this within the school's strategic planning.

Regular professional development opportunities are provided for all staff members, enabling them to remain up-to-date with the latest research and best practices in the field of SEND. This ensures that all teachers and support staff have the necessary knowledge and skills to deliver high-quality teaching and support to pupils with SEND.

Teaching and learning

High-quality teaching is the cornerstone of our provision for pupils with SEND. Our teachers adapt their teaching to meet the diverse needs of learners, utilizing a range of teaching strategies and resources. They carefully plan and adapt the curriculum, providing appropriate scaffolding and challenge for each individual.

We prioritize early identification of SEND and provide timely interventions to address any barriers to learning. Individual Education Plans (IEPs) are created collaboratively, involving parents, carers, and external professionals when necessary. These plans outline clear targets and strategies to support the pupils' progress and are regularly reviewed and updated.

The school ensures that all pupils, including those with SEND, have access to a broad and balanced curriculum. This includes meaningful participation in whole school activities, promoting social interaction, and fostering holistic development. We make reasonable adjustments to ensure pupils with SEND can fully engage in all aspects of school life.



Engagement with Parents and Carers

We believe that strong partnerships with parents and carers are vital in achieving outstanding SEND provision. Glade Primary School actively involves parents and carers in decision-making processes and values their expertise and insights. We have open and regular communication channels, providing opportunities for parents and carers to discuss their child's progress, seek advice, and share feedback.

Collaboration and Multi-Agency Working

We recognize that providing outstanding SEND provision requires effective collaboration with external agencies and professionals. Glade Primary School actively engages with external partners such as educational psychologists, speech and language therapists, and specialist teachers. We value their expertise and utilize their support to tailor interventions and provision according to individual needs.

Regular multi-agency meetings are conducted to share information, review progress, and plan next steps. This collaborative approach ensures a holistic and coordinated support network is in place to meet the specific needs of each child with SEND.



Through our outstanding SEND provision at Glade Primary School, we are committed to achieving the following impact:

  1. Attainment and Progress: Pupils with SEND will make progress academically and socially, achieving outcomes that are in line with their developmental trajectory. Achievement gaps between pupils with SEND and their peers will narrow over time.

  2. Inclusive Culture: All pupils, including those with SEND, will feel valued, included, and safe within our school community. They will have a sense of belonging and positive self-esteem, fostering their well-being and emotional development.

  3. Independence and Resilience: Pupils with SEND will develop the skills, confidence, and independence necessary to take ownership of their learning, advocate for themselves, and overcome challenges. They will be prepared for the next stage of their education and equipped for life beyond school.

  4. Positive Parental Engagement: Parents and carers of pupils with SEND will feel supported, informed, and empowered to contribute actively to their child's learning. They will have a strong partnership with the school, trusting its expertise and benefiting from the opportunities and resources provided.

  5. Effective Collaboration: Our school will maintain robust partnerships with external agencies, ensuring that pupils with SEND receive timely and appropriate support. Multi-agency working will be streamlined, avoiding duplication and ensuring the best possible provision for pupils with SEND.


By implementing these key principles and continuously evaluating our provision, we aim to create an outstanding SEND provision at Glade Primary School, meeting the needs of all our learners and celebrating their individuality and successes.
