Special Educational Needs and Disabilities
At Glebe Primary School, we are committed to offering an inclusive curriculum to ensure the best possible progress for all of our pupils whatever their needs or abilities.
We aim to:
- identify pupils with special educational needs and disabilities and ensure that their needs are met through a provision which is in accordance with the SEND Code of Practice.
- ensure that teaching is inclusive.
- ensure that pupils with special educational needs and disabilities join in with all the activities of the school.
- ensure that all pupils make the best possible progress.
- ensure parents are informed of their child's special educational needs and that there is effective communication between parents and school.
- ensure that pupils express their views and are fully involved in decisions which affect their education.
- promote effective partnership and involve outside agencies.
- Plan for transition across all Key Stages.
The school is committed to early identification of special educational needs and adopts a graduated response to meeting special educational need in line with the Code of Practice.
Intervention for pupils on the SEND register is identified and tracked using the whole-school provision map.
Where a pupil has a significant, severe and sustained need, it may be necessary to enter a multi-disciplinary assessment process with health and social care in order to consider the need for an Education Health and Care Plan. Pupils with an Education Health and Care Plan will have access to all arrangements for pupils on the SEND list and, in addition to this, will have an Annual Review of their plan.
Pupils, who are on the SEND register who have an Educational Health Care Plan or who are at SEND Support, have a SEND Support Plan. The SEND Support Plan includes:
- the long-term (term) targets set for or by the pupil
- the short-term targets (three weeks) set for or by the pupil
- the teaching strategies to be used
- the provision to be put in place
- when the plan is to be reviewed
- success and/or exit criteria
The SEND Support Plan is reviewed every term and the outcomes are recorded. Pupils participate fully in the review process. Parents / carers are also invited to participate in the target-setting and review process.
Our Inclusion Leader is Mrs S. Ives.

SEND Parent Forum
The SEND Parent Forum aims to represent the views of all parents of children who are on the school’s special education register. It facilitates communication between parents/carers, staff and governors. The forum works to provide feedback on provision, offer a parent's perspective on current policy and practice and input into decision making and planning for future provision.
