SPECIAL EDUCATIONAL NEEDS AND DISABILITIES AT EXNING PRIMARY SCHOOL
At Exning Primary School we welcome everybody into our community. We believe that child should be provided with the opportunity to achieve his or her full potential.
Every student at Exning Primary School has the opportunity to follow all National Curriculum subjects, with Quality First Teaching designed to allow all learners to access the curriculum. However, some children may require extra support to allow them to achieve their potential, and this is where our SEND support is offered.
We are committed to narrowing the attainment gap between SEND and non-SEND students. This may include one-to-one or small group school interventions with a dedicated SEND Teaching Assistant, Classroom Teaching Assitant or Teacher. It may also include other learning or behavioural interventions developed on an individual needs basis.

OUR LOCAL OFFER
The changes in the Children and Families Bill affect the way children with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND) are supported in schools. The new approach began in September 2014 and places pupils at the centre of planning. The key principles of the new legislation are:
1. Young people and their families should be involved in discussions about the support they need, so they can share their knowledge and feed back to the school on the young person’s progress.
2. Education, health and care plans (EHC) will replace statements of special educational needs. New assessments for additional educational needs will follow the EHC guidelines from September 2014. (Existing statements will remain in force until all children and young people have completed the transition, which will be within three years).
3. School Action and School Action Plus will cease and be replaced by a single school-based category for children who need extra specialist support.
Exning Primary School is well placed to adopt these changes and looks forward to working with pupils and parents/carers to ensure fully inclusive access to our education.
