Children with SEN

Children with Special Education Needs

We are an inclusive mainstream school here at Brize Norton Primary and we cater for children with a wide range of special educational needs. We have 21 children on the SEND register, 16% of the school, which is slightly higher than the national average (13%). 7 of our pupils (5%) have an EHCP, which is slightly higher than the national average of 4.3%.

We are dedicated to ensuring all our children are nurtured here at Brize Norton and have the opportunity to SHINE as well as receive their full educational enitilement.  We do not narrow the curriuclum for children with SEN but ensure scaffolding and support is in place for them to be able to access this at their own level.  At times, we also look to provide a more bespoke package of provision to support those who may require it for short periods of time.  We seek training and support from external agencies and work closely with them to ensure that we are provding the very best, and most up to date, practices for children within our care. 
How does the school support children with SEND
In order to see how we provide the best education for children with SEND, please read the following;
SEND Information Report
SEND Policy
You can find information about the Oxfordshire County Council SEN Local Offer on their website, or by clicking here.
What can you do
The class teacher primarily has responsibility for identifying children who have SEN through their observations, assessments and daily interactions. Initial concerns will always be shared with parents as well as the SENCo; initial screening and descriptors will then be completed. Teachers will support your child through additional and/or different means to ensure your child can access the curriculum appropriately.  As an inclusive school, we seek to support children within the classroom.  If you feel your child may have Special Education Needs, you can also make an appointment to speak with the class teacher to discuss your concerns.
Who can I talk to:
Mrs Maria Penn is the SENCo and Inclusion lead.

The Governing Body in co-operation with the headteacher has a legal responsibility for determining the policy and provision for pupils with SEN.

The SEN Governor is David Golding (contact through school)

Please contact the school on 01993 842488 and speak to Mrs Maria Penn or send an email to senco@brize-norton.oxon.sch.uk
