An Introduction to The FitzWimarc School's ‘LOCAL OFFER’ for Special Educational Needs and Disability (SEND)


The FitzWimarc School believes that all pupils should be respected and valued as per our Own School Values. The FitzWimarc School strives hard to ensure that all pupils:

• Have a broad and balanced curriculum which is differentiated to meet individual needs

• Can learn and make progress according to their individual developmental trends

• Are assessed using appropriate assessment tools and guidelines

• Have equal access to resources, provision and interventions as needed

Special educational provision is provision that is additional to or different from that made generally for others of the same age. This means provision that goes beyond the differentiated approaches and learning arrangements normally provided as part of high quality, personalised teaching. It may take the form of additional support from within the classroom, individual or group interventions or require involvement of specialist staff or support services.

Our School has a Special Educational Needs Co-ordinator (SENCO) who is responsible for the management of provision and /or support for identified pupils with SEND. They will also support teachers and other staff to enable them to provide appropriate provision for children in their class with SEND.

All teachers are teachers of SEND pupils and as such provide quality first teaching which takes account of the particular individual needs of pupils with SEN within the classroom.
