Access to Curriculum

Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND)

All pupils follow the National Curriculum at a level and a pace that is appropriate to their abilities. Our SEND philosophy places SEND children at the heart of personalised learning and our curriculum is tailored to meet individual pupils needs. At times and when it is felt appropriate, modifications to the curriculum may be implemented. To successfully match pupil ability to the curriculum New Hartley First School remain committed to:

  • A range of teaching and learning styles
  • Differentiated learning materials
  • Access to ICT and Technology
  • Additional in class support
  • Additional out of class support
  • Many Enrichment and Enjoyment opportunities to stimulate and motivate learning
  • Flexible groupings – including small group support work
  • An innovative and supportive curriculum
  • The appropriate use of rewards and sanctions
  • A broad range of extra-curricular activities, one to one support and booster/extension sessions (ranging from Catch-Up Literacy, Talk for Writing to Plus 1 and 2 Mathematics)
  • Assessment procedures that emphasise pupils’ strengths and achievements
  • Applications during national testing at Key Stage 1 to obtain access arrangements as appropriate
