Miss Louise Hunt - Newcroft Special Educational Needs Coordinator (SENCo).
Many children come to Newcroft with additional needs. For others, these needs become apparent over time. We recognise the need to provide additional support to these pupils and will do so in a sensitive and professional manner.All children have a right to learn. For some children this will be more difficult than for others. So, at Newcroft, we endeavour to make every effort to achieve maximum inclusion of all pupils whilst meeting pupils’ individual needs.
We believe that all children have rights to a full, enriching and enjoyable curriculum, irrespective of race, belief, gender, background or ability. We aim to meet each child’s requirements, making necessary adaptations and taking in to account their needs and wishes. We will consult with children, parents and outside agencies to help support our good practice. Strengths will be acknowledged as well as difficulties, so that adaptations may be made relevant to the individual child. We focus on individual progress as the main indicator of success.
Every child is valued. Every child is an individual with a personality, needs and interests. We believe in the right of children to feel safe and to enjoy their school experience – thus developing the whole child, academically, socially, physically, morally, emotionally and spiritually.
High quality teaching that is differentiated and personalised will meet the individual needs of the majority of children and young people. Some children and young people need educational provision that is additional to or different from this. This is special educational provision under Section 21 of the Children and Families Act 2014.
