Special Educational Needs and Disability (SEND)
It is acknowledged that all teachers at Altarnun Primary School, Egloskerry Primary School and Launceston Primary School are teachers of young people with special educational needs. As such we adopt a 'whole school approach' to SEN which involves all staff adhering to a model of good practice. The staff are committed to identifying and providing for the needs of all young people in a wholly inclusive environment.
We believe that early identification based on a knowledge of those students in our care, allows us to best support students. We aim for all students to become resilient and independent learners who can make the most of the opportunities at school to thrive and grow.
We encourage all parents to liaise with their child’s class teacher in the first instance if they have any concerns or questions about their child’s learning or wellbeing. Students provision is regularly monitored and reviewed using the graduated response and in collaboration with parents and student. Teachers are supported by the Headteacher and the progress of each child monitored regularly.
