Approach to SEN & D


At Scarning VC Primary, we believe in participation for all. We want all adults and children to participate in learning and we celebrate all members of our community. We want to create an inclusive culture in our school and we aim to be responsive to the diversity of children’s backgrounds, interests, experience, knowledge and skills.

We aim to create a learning environment which is flexible enough to meet the needs of all members of our school community.

At Scarning we believe that children and young people with SEND and their families should be at the heart of the decision making process. We listen to them and their thoughts drive our SEN & D policy and procedures.

At Scarning we provide a supportive, pro-active provision that provides the utmost care for all our children. We work as a team, providing early identification, targeted interventions, giving each child ‘time to talk’ thus allowing each child with support to overcome their barriers, to progress, achieve and shine as individuals.

Every child is special to us – we are proud of them all.
