Our Intent


At Kanes Hill Primary School, we are dedicated to providing a high-quality of education, which encompasses a full curriculum, to all of our children including those who have Special Educational Needs and/or Disabilities (SEND).  We believe that it is vital that our children are equipped with the tools needed to become curious and independent learners, both inside and outside of the classroom. All children and young people should expect to receive an education that enables them to achieve the best possible outcomes, and become confident, able to communicate their own views and ready to make successful transitions into the wider world. Through High Quality Inclusive Teaching, planning and provision we:

  • Ensure that needs are identified as early as possible and support is put into place using a Graduated Approach
  • Ensure that children have access to a broad and balanced curriculum which is appropriately differentiated to enable all children to succeed and make progress
  • Provide an accessible learning environment which is tailored to the needs of all pupils
  • Develop children’s independence
  • Regularly monitor the progress of children with SEND
  • Work closely with parents and carers
  • Work closely with external agencies and other professionals to ensure that there is a collaborative approach to support children with SEND.



At Kanes Hill Primary School, every teacher is a teacher of SEND, and every Leader is a Leader of SEND. Our provision is enhanced by the collaboration of teachers, senior leaders, the SENCo, support staff, external agencies, parents and most importantly the child.

Pupils with SEND will:

  • Be included in all aspects of the school day
  • Be provided with High Quality Inclusive Teaching, adapted to meet their needs
  • Be respected and acknowledged

Pupils with SEND may:

  • Have specific time for interventions delivered 1:1 or in small groups, sometimes outside of the classroom
  • Have access to specific group or 1:1 support to support them accessing different areas of the curriculum
  • Take part in social, emotional and mental health interventions such as ELSA or Nurture Group
  • Receive additional support from a Speech and Language Therapist or Speech and Language Support Assistant
  • Work alongside outside agencies such as the Educational Psychologist, Occupational Therapist, Social, Emotional and Mental Health team (such as MHST, No Limits or CAMHS), Outreach Services such as SAOS, or the Speech and Language Therapist
