SEND at Callands

Callands Community Primary Schools’ leaders construct a curriculum that is ambitious and designed to give all learners, particularly the most disadvantaged and those with special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEND), the knowledge, vocabulary, transferable concepts and cultural capital they need to succeed in life. The curriculum is coherently planned and sequenced towards cumulatively sufficient knowledge and skills for future learning and employment. All learners study the full curriculum, ‘specialising’ only when necessary.

When delivering the curriculum, Callands Community Primary Schools’ teaching staff provide high-quality teaching and learning for all pupils. Teachers have developed a repertoire of strategies that they can use flexibly in response to individual needs and use these as a starting point for classroom teaching for all pupils, including those with SEND. The strategies embrace: scaffolding, explicit instruction, technology, cognitive and metacognitive strategies and flexible grouping.

Effective teaching for pupils with SEND at Callands Community Primary School consists of a climate of positive interactions between teachers and pupils and among peers; additional teaching (e.g. teaching more structured steps towards a learning goal); and the use of different strategies (e.g. the use of graphic organisers, mnemonics and learning scaffolds).

Passport to Success Template

When a child is identified as having a special educational need, we create a bespoke Passport to Success (IEP). This will specify what will be taught to your child and what resources and strategies will be put in place based on your child's individual needs. Class teachers, parents/carers and pupils work collaboratively to create these. The template for how this will look can be found below.

One Page Profile

Staff at Callands believe that one-page profiles are the foundation of personalisation, and can lead to positive change for all children with SEND. We create one-page profiles to ensure all staff working with your child have an understanding of what your child likes about themselves, what they feel is important, how best to support them and how they communicate. This is created by your child and their class teacher. The template how these look can be found below.
