Special Education Needs and Disabilities (SEND)

The Governors and staff at Beech Green Primary are committed to meeting the educational needs of all our pupils through the provision of challenging and exciting experiences. We celebrate their diversities and differences by embracing an inclusive ethos throughout the school. We recognise that quality learning takes place when we motivate pupils, promote their self-esteem and develop the skills and aptitudes they require to enable them to make their way as lifelong learners.

We understand the importance of finding out the perceptions and feelings of children, and encourage them to be actively involved in their own learning. We value working in partnership with parents, children, and outside agencies to ensure the best provision possible.

Catering for the Needs of all Children

We are committed to developing cultures, policies and practices that are inclusive.


We have systems to identify when children have barriers affecting their learning and tailor specific interventions to enable pupils to overcome their barriers. This practice of personalising learning applies to all pupils across the learning spectrum.

Children succeed highly at our school where excellence is encouraged and celebrated. The school is developing a strong academic reputation. Work is well planned for higher level thinking and learning as well as a secure foundation of knowledge, skills and understanding. The whole-school curriculum is designed to provide exciting and creative learning opportunities. Expectations are consistently high across the school and children are encouraged to be independent thinkers and learners, and to have enquiring minds.

Where children are identified as needing additional learning or behavioural support, the school adheres to the SEND Code of Practice. We ensure that each child’s needs are individually and appropriately catered for, and that any relevant outside agencies are involved in providing guidance and support.
