SEND

Little Hill Primary School is both welcoming and inclusive. Our aims for pupils with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities are the same as for all of our pupils; to provide a broad and balanced curriculum and the highest quality of education. We are committed to maximum integration and ensuring full curriculum entitlement and access.

 

We actively encourage partnerships with parents, for instance through coffee mornings or family forums. Our aim is to inform and involve parents as much as possible in school decision making and our parents appreciate this.

 

We believe in person centred learning and pupils are  enabled to be active participants in their learning  evaluating, expressing opinions, making choices and being involved in setting their targets. We are lucky to have a very dedicated staff team, all of whom view themselves as teachers of all pupils including those with SEND. 

 

At Little Hill, we have published our SEND Information  upon this website and details can be found at the top of the attachments below. We aim to help children, young people, and parents/carers to find information and support as smoothly as possible. Our school 'Local offer' and SEND information page is a geniune joint effort and it is updated regularly after consultaion meetings with SEND parents,  looking at different aspects of provision.  

 

Our school intends to link closely and align itself to the local authority local offer, and information about Leicestershire’s local offer regarding SEND can be found by clicking here. The aims of Little Hill Primary School are based on the values derived from the Statement of Principles adopted by the LA and guided by the DfE Code Of Practice for SEND.

October 3rd to the 7th  was Dyslexia Awareness Week. The theme this year was recognising and diagnosing dyslexia. The children have had a special assembly on the different ways our brains work; including the dyslexic brain.

Class 3BP have been doing some super work finding out the way their brains work and their own learning styles. They have also been telling stories without using the written word. Well done Class 3BP!
