SEND

At Summerseat Methodist primary school we have a fully inclusive approach to the education, and involvement, of all children so that they can access, and experience, the whole curriculum. We believe that all children have a right to a broad, balanced and relevant education, which provides continuity and progression and takes individual differences into account. Therefore, school is strongly committed to ensuring that all children receive high quality first teaching (QFT) so they can reach their full potential, regardless of any additional challenges or barriers they may face.

As part of our inclusive strategy, children will be educated within their classroom for the majority of the lesson. However, some interventions, or precision teaching, may take place outside of the classroom, in order to be further personalised. We aim to provide a curriculum that is appropriate to the needs and abilities of all our children. We plan our teaching and learning in such a way that we enable each child to reach for the highest level of personal achievement. In the links below, you will find a core programme of possible interventions that we are able to offer our children that our staff are trained in. 

In addition to reading the school's SEN Information Report and policies, please arrange a visit to school, we have an, ‘open door’ policy and are always here to answer any further questions you may have.

Access

How accessible is Summereseat Methodist Primary?

Summerseat Methodist is accessible for all due to the open-plan layout of the building. An audit of the accessibility is carried out every 3 years by an external company. If you wish to see the audit report, please contact the school.

From the audit report, an accessibility action plan is developed with key actions. This can be accessed via the accessibility Plan tab below.

School makes every effort to support children and parents/carers whose first language is not English. There are services available to translate and work with children on a regular basis to support their language development where appropriate.
