Special Educational Needs
At Christ the Sower Ecumenical School
- We aim to meet the needs of individual children through highly effective teaching and learning and a nurturing environment based on Christian values and ethos.
- There is an emphasis on early identification of needs through supportive and preventative strategies which reduce barriers to learning.
- We work in a flexible, personalised way to develop effective partnerships with children and their parents/carers, the SENCO, specialist teaching staff and external professionals such as speech and language therapists, occupational therapists and child and adolescent mental health services (CAMHS) to ensure that the school can meet a broad range of special educational needs.
We regularly monitor all children’s progress and wellbeing in order to support their learning within a broad curriculum. We aim to foster a culture of lifelong, independent learning and social skills for all children, using a wide range of strategies in order to remove any barriers to children achieving everything they are capable of.
