Invicta Primary School is committed to Inclusion and we aim to provide an appropriate and high quality education for all children living in our local community. We believe that all children have a common entitlement to a broad and balanced academic and social curriculum. We are strive to enable all children to reach their full potential, including those with a gift or talent or a special educational need.
Special Educational Needs may be identified before entry or once the pupil is attending school, when a parent or a member of staff may identify them. These needs are discussed with parents, in confidence, at the earliest opportunity.
Children who are identified are supported in school through the development of appropriate interventions (please see the School’s Local offer below) which will help them meet their identified targets. Some children may have a number of targets and therefore the school will develop an individual learning or education plan (IEP) which will be reviewed regularly. The school works in partnership with parents to support a pupil’s development and address his or her needs to enable the pupil to achieve his or her potential. In some cases, with parents’ consent, the school involves outside agencies to provide additional support.
We have a Child and Family Support Leader in school who works with our children and families on:
- Listening to their views
- Helping to remove any barriers to learning
- Help them manage pressures in their lives
- Encouraging children to achieve
- Raising self-confidence
- Encourage them to be more self-sufficient
- Develop hidden talents
- Produce a plan of action to work towards agreed goals
- Review and change the plan regularly
- Support them to organise their time
- Help them understand the work they have to do
These barriers can involve things such as:
- Attendance and issues at home
- Friendship difficulties
- Low self-esteem
- Anger issues
- Worries about transitions e.g. - primary to secondary school
- Anxieties of any kind
