SPECIAL EDUCATIONAL NEEDS AND DISABILITIES
Our SENDCo is Kate McCarter
At All Souls we believe that every child has the ability to achieve and find success during their time with us. We aim to establish pupils' strengths and educational needs as soon as they start school and, in this way, develop programmes of support that will help all of our pupils achieve their potential in their future.
Special Educational Provision means different or additional support other than that which is generally made for children of the same age. Each class teacher adapts their teaching to meet the needs of each pupil. However, some children need more specialised support or intervention.

PUPILS WITH DISABILITIES
At All Souls we believe that all pupils regardless of race, gender or disabilities should have equal access to the curriculum in order to achieve to their highest potential. Currently, the SENCO, class teacher and learning support assistants collaborate in order to provide resources and support that will enable pupils with a learning disability to participate fully in the school curriculum. For more information, please refer to the school's Special Educational Needs Policy.
Whilst our school is built over a number of floors, we do have a disabled access and disabled toilet. For more information please refer to the school’s Disability and Access Policy.
Withdrawal groups have proven to be very successful in enabling access to the curriculum in Literacy and Numeracy. The school provides intervention in the form of Catch Up and Five Minute box Literacy and Numeracy support, which provides individual support by trained Teaching Assistants. Additional support is positively enjoyed by pupils and valued by parents as an additional learning opportunity for their children. Additional intervention is also provided depending on the needs of pupils. Pupil Premium funding is used to provide much of this intervention.
