SEND

Inclusion is at the heart of our school, we celebrate that all children are different and are indeed unique. As the school continues to grow we endeavour to always provide a positive and nurturing environment whereby our children feel able to build upon their strengths and their areas for development. 

SEND

Depending on the individual needs of children, they will receive both curriculum support in class and additional support in small groups as appropriate. The quality of teaching within the classroom has the greatest influence over children’s progress and we will invest in training, resources and monitoring to ensure our classrooms are an inclusive place for all children. This is known as our 'Universal Offer'.

Additional 'Targetted' interventions will be planned to enable children to accelerate their progress and work at, or above the expectations for their age. These are generally taught in a small group and sometimes a 1:1 situation.

A child identified as having SEND also receives ‘Specialist’ interventions. These may be provided individually or in a small group, and the support provided will be personalised to enable the child to achieve his/her potential. This support is additional to or different from the everyday curriculum for that class and is detailed in a provision map and reviewed regularly. Any additional support for a child will be planned for by the class teacher and overseen by the SENCO. It may also include provision/ advice from an external agency or professional.

Enhanced Provision Resource Base

In January 2024, we opened an Enhanced Provision Resource Base at Cherry Fields Primary School.  The resource base is part of the continuum of provision for pupils with SEND in Oxfordshire.  The Resource Base is planned to support children with Communication and Interaction needs.  For pupils to attend, a pupil will need an EHCP which indicates Communication and Interaction as a pupil's primary need.  If you are interested in hearing more about the Resource Base provision, please do contact the school and we will be very happy to talk to you about what we can offer and the admission process.

 

SENCO: Mrs Vicki Wingrove

Contact by email via info@cherryfieldsprimaryschool.org, marked 'FAO Vicki Wingrove, SENCo'. 

Our headteacher, Claire Robertson has completed the NASENCO accreditation.

We aim to ensure that each child is fully included in all aspects of school life and make reasonable adjustments to meet their needs. These may encompass: 

 

  • Children with Special Educational Needs. (Please see our SEND Policy and Information Report. Click here for the Local Offer within Oxfordshire) 
  • Children with Medical Needs (Please see our Medical Needs Policy and First Aid Procedures) 
  • Children with English as an Additional Language (Please see our EAL Policy) 
  • Children with ethnic and multi-cultural needs. 
  • Children requiring pastoral support. We are developing as a Thrive school. Our Home School Link Worker is a Licensed Thrive Practitioner and we have another member of staff in training. For more information please see:  https://www.thriveapproach.co.uk/

We aim: 

  • to ensure that the language and learning needs of individual pupils are clearly identified and provided for
  • to enable pupils to gain full access to the school and National curriculum by using a pedagogical approach rooted in Cognitive Load Theory, and develop universal, targeted and specialist strategies to overcome any obstacles that might prevent pupils from achieving their full potential. 

We achieve this by: 

  • assessing each child’s needs to plan and set targets for the individual. 
  • depending on the individual needs of pupils, providing curriculum support in class and additional support in small groups as appropriate for language development and enrichment. 

In class support includes: 

  • A language rich environment 
  • visual and ICT support 
  • displays and resources in the classroom and around the school to celebrate difference and promote a growth mindset 
  • our teachers keep parents regularly informed about pupil’s progress.
  • Parents are invited to share in achievements through Dojo points, certificates and rewards during assembly, school reports, parents evenings, newsletters and letters home.
