Special Educational Needs and Disability
We believe that inclusion is about supporting all children, we believe that all children deserve the right to be fully supported and be equipped to fulfil their potential. Each class is assigned a Teaching Assistant and it is usually those Teaching Assistants that are assigned to providing additional SEND support on a one to one basis or within small groups to ensure their needs are met. We also do our best to ensure that all children are able to access all the activities of the school.
The Special Needs Co-ordinators (SENDCOs) work with the teachers and teaching assistants to provide appropriate intervention programs to support children with their learning. They are there to help all children in school who may have a problem with their learning, it may be a long-term issue with specific learning difficulties or just needing short-term help in a particular area. They liaise with other outside agencies to ensure that a child's needs are met.
The SEND Co-ordinators are:
Mrs Charlotte Galt is the SENDCO at Thorverton, Brampford Speke, Silverton and CHeriton FItzpaine schools -
Mrs Sue Wilkinson is the SENDCO at Newton St Cyres School -
Mrs Charlotte Tofts is the SENDCO at Sandford School -
