SEND at Alfriston School

At Alfriston we have a fully inclusive approach to education.  We do everything in our power to make sure that all children have their educational and other relevant needs met.  We employ “quality first” teaching in the classroom, supplemented by targeted interventions to ensure that every child reaches their true potential.  Progress is monitored regularly at Pupil Progress meetings where progress and provision are discussed by the whole class team (class teacher and support staff), the Headteacher and the Inclusion Manager. Adjustments to provision are made regularly (6 times per year minimum, but often more frequently).

School staff are well trained, and experienced in supporting children with a range of needs, and a number of effective and proven interventions are employed. Our Inclusion Manager has extensive experience in a variety of settings.

If you would like more information about how we support children with medical conditions please click here for this policy.

It is very important to us that parents/carers are involved in their children’s education.  Parents/carers can contact the Inclusion Manager by making an appointment via the school office should they wish to discuss SEND provision in general, or where it specifically applies to their child.
