How we adapt our curriculum for children with SEND

At Vane Road  Primary School, we believe that inclusive education means providing all pupils with appropriate education and support alongside their peers. 

It includes not only the formal requirements of the National 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.

All pupils follow the National Curriculum at a level and a pace that is appropriate to their abilities. Our SEND philosophy places SEND children at the heart of personalised learning and our curriculum is tailored to meet individual pupils needs.

At times and when it is felt appropriate, modifications to the curriculum may be implemented. To successfully match pupil ability to the curriculum Vane Road Primary School remain committed to:

  • A range of teaching and learning styles.
  • Differentiated learning materials
  • Access to ICT and Technology.
  • Additional in class support
  • Additional out of class support
  • Flexible groupings – including small group support work.
  • An innovative, creative and supportive curriculum.
  • The appropriate use of rewards and sanctions.
  • A broad range of extra-curricular activities, including craft club, Gardening, Disney Club, Once Upon a Time Club, Board Game Club, Construction Club and various sports clubs and activities throughout the year. 
  • Assessment procedures that emphasise pupils’ strengths and achievements.
  • Applications during national testing at Key Stage 2 to obtain access arrangements as appropriate.

More details on how we adapt information, our environment and curriculum can be found in the Accessibility Plan which you can find in the School Policies section of our website.
