Progress-SEND

Overview

At Edgbarrow, we provide for the individual needs of pupils. The Progress Department supports a wide range of pupils with a wide range of difficulties by identifying, assessing and assisting them throughout their school career or when they are in need of help. 


Key Staff

Ms Patel - Head of Progress (SENCO)
Mrs Leiba – SEN teacher 
Mrs Philip – SEN teacher
Mrs Cruickshank – SEN teacher
Mr Oliver - SEN teacher
Mrs Wilmot – Exams Access Coordinator/Specialist Assessor, HLTA
Mrs Dobson – Department Administrator


Individualised Approach

The department adopts an individualised approach to each child's difficulties and aims to work with teaching staff, the pastoral system and parents to help children to accept their difficulties, learn to manage them independently and attain their potential. A staged system of support, which includes assistance from outside agencies if appropriate and regular target setting, monitoring and review, is implemented by an experienced team of Teachers and Learning Support Assistants.

Integrated Support

Much of the support given is within the normal classroom environment but occasionally pupils work in small groups or individually with specialist teachers. Pupils with Educational Health Care Plans are integrated into all aspects of the curriculum.


 

Curriculum Intent

Our aim is to create an inclusive environment where barriers to learning are overcome via strategies, targeted interventions or additional support giving full access to the curriculum for all. Our pupils’ success will be recognised through increased independence and confidence in the classroom as well as being equipped for adulthood and the wider world.
