SEND

Little Hill Primary School is both welcoming and inclusive.  Our aim 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 have high ambitions for our SEND pupils and set targets that stretch them.

We will support pupils to ensure their integration and curriculum entitlement. We value personal and social development and this is a central part of our provision.

We actively encourage partnerships with parents, for instance through our parent and family forums for SEND issues. Our aim is to inform and involve parents as much as possible in school decision making and provide them with support, advice and access to services. Our parents appreciate this approach. 

 

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  Report 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 information report booklet and our school offers are a geniune joint effort. They are  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  adopted by the LA and guided by the 2014 DfE Code Of Practice for SEND.
