Hunsbury Park Primary

We endeavour to achieve maximum inclusion of all children (including vulnerable learners) whilst meeting their individual needs.All teachers provide differentiated learning opportunities for all the children within the school and provide materials appropriate to children’s interests and abilities.  This ensures that all children have a full access to the school curriculum.

Special Educational Needs might be an explanation for delayed or slower progress but is not an excuse; we make every effort to narrow the gap in attainment between vulnerable groups of learners and their peers. 

English as an Additional Language (EAL) is not considered a Special Education Need. Differentiated work and individual learning opportunities are provided for children who are learning EAL as part of our provision for vulnerable learners.  

It is our responsibility to ensure that pupils with special educational needs have the maximum opportunity to attain and make progress in line with their peers. Accurate assessment of need and carefully planned programmes, which address the root causes of any learning difficulty, are essential ingredients of success for these pupils. 

These will be provided, initially, through additional support funded from the devolved schools budget.
