Every Teacher is required to adapt the curriculum to ensure access to learning for all children in their class. The Teacher Standards 2012 detail the expectations on all teachers, and we at Woodlands Primary Academy are proud of our Teachers and their development.
Our Teachers will use various strategies to adapt access to the curriculum, this might include using:
- Visual timetables
- Writing frames
- I-pads, lap tops or other alternative recording devices
- Peer buddy systems
- Positive behaviour rewards system
Each learner identified as having SEND, is entitled to support that is ‘additional to or different from’ a normal differentiated curriculum. The type of support is dependent on the individual learning needs, and is intended to enable access to learning and overcome the barrier to learning identified. This support is described on our provision map, which although does not detail the individual learner names, describes the interventions and actions that we undertake at Woodlands Primary Academy to support learners with SEND across the year groups. We modify the provision map regularly, and it changes as our learners and their needs change. The current provision map is available here
At Woodlands Primary Academy we share the provision map with our colleagues in the Lynn Grove Cluster so we can learn from each other, and demonstrate what we offer for learners with SEND. We are also able to promote consistent practice across all the schools in our cluster ensuring equality of opportunity.
Our provision map is shared with Governors who are able to ensure that we monitor the impact of these interventions on learning across the school.
