At Marshside Primary School we strive to support all children to enable them to achieve at school. In order to do this many steps are taken to support them through their learning journey.

Quality teaching is vital; however for some children there are occasions when further additional support may be needed to help them achieve their targets.

Marshside Primary School is an inclusive school and will offer the following range of provision to support children with communication and interaction, cognition and learning difficulties, social, mental and emotional health problems or sensory or physical needs.

Marshside Primary School is a Dyslexia Friendly School.

“No stone is left unturned to ensure that all pupils, including those most vulnerable, are well cared for and supported. Pupils in all classes are happy. They feel safe, behave well and have positive attitudes to their learning.”

Ofsted Report March 2013

At Marshside Primary we aspire to meet the needs of our school population as far as possible through good quality inclusive teaching. We believe the provision of a minimum offer, in terms of quality first teaching, ensures that all pupils will access good quality inclusive teaching providing reasonable adjustments to accommodate any learning differences.

The identification of SEN is built into the overall approach to monitoring the progress and development of all children at Marshside Primary School. A child has SEN when, in order for them to make progress, they require additional or different support to the schools’ quality first offer which is available to all children. Regular assessment will help identify children who are not making anticipated progress and therefore require more targeted support. When children are identified as requiring SEN support parents will be notified and their views (and those of the child) will be incorporated in any targeted plan.

Hopefully you will find the information on the SEND section of our website informative and useful. If you have any questions about SEND or your child’s education, please feel free to speak to Mrs Walsh.
