                         Gilmour Infant School Special Educational Needs & Disabilities Statement of Intent


At Gilmour Infant School we believe that all children should be supported and inspired to achieve their very best. We fully support all children with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND), in line with the SEN Code of Practice and the Special Educational Needs and Disability Regulations 2014. Gilmour Infants prides itself in being an inclusive school and we endeavour to support every child regardless of their level of need. All children follow the National Curriculum at a level and a pace that is appropriate to their abilities. At times, when it is appropriate, modifications to the curriculum may be made.

At Gilmour Infants we:

  • Provide quality first teaching.

  • Ensure teaching and support staff are aware of and sensitive to the needs of all children.

  • Work in partnership with parents/carers and relevant external agencies in order to meet the needs of children.

  • Identify at the earliest opportunity, children that need support, whether educational, social, physical or emotional.

  • Provide programmes of intervention tailored to children’s needs.

  • Ensure that children with SEND are fully included in all school activities.

  • Promote self-worth and enthusiasm by encouraging independence at all age and ability levels.

  • Give every child the entitlement to a sense of achievement.

If you would like to discuss your child’s SEND requirements please contact the school to arrange an appointment.
