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 creation of an individual provision map/education plan which will help them meet their identified targets. The plan is 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. Extra support is provided when necessary, and in some cases, with parents’ consent, the school involves outside agencies to provide additional support.
Sept 2014 Parent Information events on the SEND Reforms are now uploaded onto the internet. Click here for more info.
Alison Webber is our Learning Mentor
Learning Mentors work with young people to remove barriers to learning by:
- Listening to their views
- Help them manager pressures in their lives
- Encourage them to achieve
- Raise their 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:
- Friendship difficulties
- Low self-esteem
- Anger issues
- Worries about transitions e.g. - primary to secondary school
- Anxieties of any kind
After referral, we will work together on:
- One to one mentoring
- Group work - focussing on particular issues e.g. Friendship groups
- Supporting new children and transition work
- After school clubs and lunch-time activities
- Study skills work
- Reading groups
Alison will be out in the playground most mornings before school or can be found in the room next to the main office as you come in the school. Parents/carers who wish to help out in the school are very welcome.
