School Inclusion

Enabling all children to make the best progress they can academically, emotionally and socially is at the heart of inclusion at Buckingham Park. We actively seek to remove barriers to learning. 

Listed below is a brief overview of the various additional programmes we deliver to support all learners, where appropriate. If you wish to discuss your child’s support programmes please do not hesitate to get in touch with with Mrs Salter, our school SENCo (Special Educational Needs Co-ordinator).

Special Educational Needs

Our school caters for children with a wide range of learning differences, such as dyslexia, autistic spectrum disorders, speech, language and communication needs, emotional and social needs and physical disabilities.

Our teachers and teaching assistants receive regular training to ensure that classroom teaching is inclusive for every child.  Working in partnership with parents is a key element to SEN provision at Buckingham Park Primary. We involve parents in the setting of individual targets for children who have individual Learning Plans. We believe that children have the best opportunity to achieve their personal potential when parents, carers and school staff work together to support them.

Gifted and Talented
We aim to ensure that children who display exceptional gifts and talents are provided for. Every year, the children with exceptional gifts and talents are identified by members of staff as well as their families. This process enables the school to ensure that provision is in place to challenge and enrich the learning of this group of children. The school works to offer a variety of enrichment opportunities both inside and outside of the classroom, and aims to harness and develop the gifts and talents that our children display. 

Speech and Language
Individualised programmes developed by a Speech Therapist who regularly works in the school are delivered by our teaching assistants. These programmes are for children who have been referred, by the school or by a medical professional, to be assessed by the Speech and Language Therapy Service. These programmes can include speech sound production, language development and social skills, depending on the child’s needs.

EAL - English as an Additional Language
This is for children who have a first language other than English and may need further intervention with their English language understanding in order to aid their academic development.  We use  guidelines given by Specialist Teachers from the Ethnic Minority and Traveller Achievement Team, which follow the National Curriculum programmes.

Educational support
We use a range of interventions and specialised resources to support children in their learning accross the whole school.

Emotional and social support                                                                                                                                    This intervention is accessible to all pupils who may be experiencing difficulty with some aspects of home/school life. Individual counselling or therapeutic play interventions can be offered to children to support their emotional or behavioural needs.These needs may be as a result of difficult or upsetting changes within the family, such as bereavement or relationship worries. These family fears and concerns can be supported by Ms. Loom, an experienced qualified counsellor/therapist, in a confidential non-directive, child centred approach. When a child's fears or anxieties are sensitively and appropriately managed, a happy more confident child can engage, access the curriculum and learn more effectively. The positive impact of counselling on children's personal emotional resilience and wellbeing encourages more confident learners.
