Special Educational Needs
At Boringdon Primary School we aspire for all children to achieve their full potential. We aim to work in partnership with parents and children to best match provision to support a child's needs.
As well as your child's class teacher, our SENCo Helen Connett is also available to talk through any concerns that you have about your child's education and wellbeing. We firmly believe in early identification and intervention.
‘A pupil has SEN (Special Educational Needs) where their learning difficulty or disability calls for special educational provision, that is provision different from or additional to that normally available to pupils of the same age.’ (SEN Code of Practice p.82)

The Pastoral Team at Boringdon are keen to offer as much support to families as possible. To help us do this we have developed an online resource. It is called a Padlet. The Padlet offers suggestions if you are finding things tricky or need a bit of extra support. Scroll down the columns to find links to resources, courses, advice and activities.
The padlet is below. Use the button to make it a full-size window.
How we adapt the curriculum and learning environment for children & young people with SEN
All children receive ‘quality first teaching’ approach and learning is carefully planned and scaffolded to support every child. SEN support arises from a four part cycle, known as the graduated approach, through which earlier decisions and actions are revisited, refined and revised. This leads to a growing understanding of the pupil’s needs and of what support is needed to make good progress and to secure good outcomes. The four stages of the cycle are: • Assess • Plan • Do • Review.
Our curriculum includes not only the formal requirements of the National Curriculum, but also a range of additional opportunities to enrich the experiences of our children. Our curriculum also includes the social aspects that are essential for life-long learning, personal growth and development of independence. Our curriculum is inclusive. A variety of steps are taken to ensure this.
- We help all pupils achieve the best of their abilities, despite any special educational need or disability they may have.
- We adapt the curriculum to meet individual needs.
- We ensure that staff are aware of and sensitive to the needs of individual pupils and that teaching is appropriate to meet those needs.
- We make suitable provision for children with SEND to fully develop their abilities, interests and aptitudes and gain maximum access to the curriculum.
