SEND, Accessibility and Equality
Special Educational Needs and Disabilities
Information about the school's approach to identifying and supporting children with SEND is outlined in the documents listed in the link below. This also outlines how the provision put in place for these pupils and how parents can be fully informed of the support in place. The SENCO is Louise Proudman and she can be contacted through the school office or using the contact sheet on the linked webpage.
The Oakthorpe Primary School Accessibility Plan has been developed and drawn up based upon information supplied by the MAT, and consultations with pupils, parents, staff and governors of the school. The document will be used to advise other school planning documents and policies and will be reported upon annually in respect of progress and outcomes. The intention is to provide a projected plan for a three-year period ahead of the next review date. Please find attached our Accessibility Plan
Equality Objectives and Policy
Oakthorpe Primary School is committed to ensuring equality of provision throughout our school. There are a number of statutory duties that must be met by every school in line with legislation from the Race Relations Amendment Act 2000, Disability Equality Duty 2005 and Equality Act 2010. We will:
- Narrow the gap in performance of children eligible for Pupil Premium (or are otherwise identified as being financially vulnerable).
- Anticipate any gaps in performance of children joining Oakthorpe after reception.
- Ensure gaps between girls and boys performance is narrowed (based on detailed knowledge of specific cohort performance and closing any gaps found in KS1 data).
- Ensure all vulnerable groups are fully represented in clubs and school roles.
