Story Wood School is a mainstream primary school which prides itself on being an inclusive school. We are committed to supporting children with special educational needs and disabilities (whose needs can reasonably be met in mainstream education) to ensure that every child meets their full potential. We know that some pupils will experience difficulties at school and may fall behind their peers; we will always do our best to meet every child's individual needs.
All teachers at Story Wood are teachers of SEND pupils and as such provide quality first teaching which takes account of the particular individual needs of pupils within their class. Students are supported by both differentiated work and support in class, to aid them in making the expected rates of progress. As well as 1:1 and small group support where appropriate, children with SEN are promptly targeted for intervention by staff who are well acquainted with SEN requirements within the school.
For students presenting with challenging behaviour, all staff are aware of individual needs, and work closely with Mrs Smith and the wider pastoral team to ensure they receive the support they need to thrive in class. We have close links with external agencies, who often work with children with additional needs, to support them to continue making progress. We strive to keep clear and open communication with parents, through termly meetings to discuss their child's learning.
