Our school prides itself in being very inclusive and will endeavour to support every child regardless of their level of need. All pupils follow the EYFS curriculum at a level and a pace that is appropriate to their abilities. At times and when it is felt appropriate, modifications to the curriculum may be implemented.
To successfully match pupil ability to the curriculum there are some actions we may take to achieve this:
At Prince Bishops Community Primary School, we have experience of supporting children and young people with a wide range of need including:
The school provides data on the levels and types of need to the Local Authority. This is collected through the school census.
At Prince Bishops Community Primary School, we believe that inclusive education means providing all pupils with appropriate education and support alongside their peers. The Curriculum is all the planned activities that the school organises in order to promote learning, personal growth and development.
It includes not only the formal requirements of the EYFS Curriculum, but also the range of additional opportunities that the school organises in order to enrich the experiences of our children. Our curriculum also includes the social aspects that are essential for life-long learning.
Most children and young people will have their special educational needs met in mainstream schools through good classroom practice. This is called Quality First Teaching.

This means that we will:
As part of this approach, we will produce a SEN Support Plan that describes the provision that we will make to meet a child’s special educational needs and agreed outcomes. Parents and carers will be fully involved in this process.
A small percentage of children and young people with significant learning difficulties might need an assessment that could lead to an Education, Health and Care Plan. Full details can be found on the Local Offer website.
