We recognise that pupils learn at different rates and that there are many factors that influence achievement and attainment.

Many pupils, at some time in their school career, may experience difficulties which pose barriers to learning; these may be long or short term. Not all pupils with disabilities have special educational needs and not all pupils with SEN meet the definition of disability; the policy covers all of these pupils.

Inclusion at South Bank Primary School aims to reduce educational difficulties and maximise potential for all children by supporting children’s holistic development and helping to remove barriers to achievement. We will provide effective learning opportunities for all children based on their individual needs.

South Bank Primary School hosts a local authority funded 25 place unit for specialist provision for children with moderate learning needs. Pupils, at some point in their primary career, may join mainstream classes wherever possible but the majority will be discretely taught in small groups where appropriate to support learning and personal needs.  From September 17, the additional resourced provision has been restructured to meet the diverse range of needs that the children experience.  There are now  three smaller  classes, each staffed by a full time teacher and 1-2 full time teaching assistants.  This allows the school to work flexibly in order to meet individual needs.  The curriculum is amended to take account of the children’s ability levels and is delivered using a range of strategies and approaches.  The children are fully included in the life of the school and where appropriate, join the mainstream peers for a range of activities in and out of school trips and residential visits.
