A major part of our provision for children with SEND at Eggbuckland Vale Primary is our Deaf Education Centre for up to 18 pupils with moderate to full hearing loss. In addition to this our school adopts a total communication policy approach using Sign Supported English, (based on British Sign Language), BSL and Cued Speech.
We also have numerous measures in place to support children with other needs, and our ‘person centred’ approach to education ensures parents/carers and pupils are consulted and collaborated with throughout their time at our school. We create a safe, affirming and consistent environment for children with SEND, and provide activities which promote social skills and emotional development.
We believe that our pragmatic, integrated and inclusive approach to SEND provision is the best way to offer value to the communities we serve. By encouraging adults and children with a wide range of needs to work and play together, we can promote tolerance and understanding.
