We do our best to ensure that all children can access all things as best as we can. We do not see SEND as a barrier to accessing the full curriculum and ensure that children with SEND are fully included in all activities in order to promote the highest levels of achievement.
For example, if a child had a physical disability, they can always be incorporated in to a PE lesson with adaptation and effort; we make that effort. We are prepared to seek advice, resources, equipment and training when needed in order to provide quality-learning experiences for our children. Over the last 24 months, our training has featured heavily on autism, ADHD, Speech, and language, prevalent aspects of SEND, which we are currently supporting children with.
At Beamish Primary we consult with a wide range of agencies and partnerships to ensure the pastoral, medical and social needs of SEND children are met.
At the Beamish Primary we believe every person should be treated equally and with respect. As long as this school is the best place to meet the needs of an individual child, he/she will be admitted and every care taken to ensure appropriate access to the full curriculum. As far as possible the physical needs of every child and adult will be catered for.
There are members of staff in school who are first aid trained and members of staff who are trained in administering prescribed medication to children. All medication is stored in a locked cupboard away from children.
Children with additional medical needs may have a care plan written in conjunction with the school nurse. The school endeavours to cater for all medical needs as practically possible and will request any additional training that is required.
If you would like to discuss your SEND requirements in detail please contact the school to arrange an appointment.
