Newlands Spring Primary School Academy Trust

Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND)

At Newlands Spring, we strongly believe that every child matters and our motto is "working together towards success for all". We work very hard to help all children achieve their full potential, irrespective of their starting points. 

We aim to identify additional needs and provide support at an early stage to ensure that children's needs are met and resolved early on where possible, and the correct provision is put in place for them from the very beginning.

Our capable teachers and Learning Support Assistants meet children's needs in class through individual or small-group focused activities. We work closely with parents and other agencies such as Speech and Language Therapy Services and Educational Psychologists and we attend regular, relevant training.

Children with identified needs are placed on the special educational needs and disabilities (SEND) register, and benefit from the Essex approach of "One Planning" focused on child-centred reviews and individual provision mapping.

Children are encouraged to take responsibility for their own learning and outcomes, and are encouraged to develop a high level of self-esteem, confidence and motivation for learning.

Please see our SEND Policy and SEND information report for further information.
