SEN & Disabilities

Swiss Gardens is an inclusive school that enables all pupils, including those with additional special educational needs and disabilities, to reach their full potential. By working in partnership with pupils, parents and carers we are continually developing our provision.

Our practices and procedures are embedded into school life to ensure pupils’ special educational needs are identified swiftly. We consider each of the pupils when planning and provide a curriculum which is accessible to all, whatever their individual needs. We acknowledge that some pupils require additional support to ensure access to a full curriculum and, where appropriate, a range of support strategies are implemented.

If additional specialist advice and support is necessary, we seek external agency support such as speech and language therapists, school nurse and educational psychologists. We are committed to effective collaboration between all agencies working with a child and a multi-disciplinary approach to meeting pupils’ special educational needs. All staff at Swiss Gardens are provided with training, coaching and support to develop and refine good practice when working with pupils with special educational needs and disabilities.

If you wish to talk to us about your child’s needs or the provision in place, please speak to your child’s class teacher or contact the special educational needs team directly.
