Special Educational Needs and Disability (SEND) – Local Offer
Welcome to our special educational needs and disability (SEND) information pages. We hope you will enjoy reading about the variety of ways in which we are able to support your child to reach his/her full potential in order to ensure a successful transition into adult life.
Carlton Primary Academy is educationally inclusive and believes that all children should be valued and treated with respect. We take into account the varied life experiences of both pupils and staff, their range of abilities, strengths and needs, and use these to enable each child to achieve their potential, develop relationships and most importantly, equip them for life.
Provision for children with SEND is a matter for Carlton Primary Academy as a whole. The academy staff work together as a team to ensure that provision for all children is of the highest standard and continually strive to develop and improve practice. All children and young people with SEND are valued, respected and equal members of Carlton Primary Academy.
If a child's needs are significantly greater than the majority of children of the same age, or they have a disability which hinders their use of educational facilities provided for the age group, then they are considered to have Special or Additional Educational Needs.
Their needs may be in the area of:
Our Special Educational Needs leader is Miss D. Baxter (Y3 teacher).
Our Special Educational Needs Governors are Mrs L.Gray and Mrs C. Whitehall

What provision is available at Carlton Primary Academy?
Carlton Primary Academy's provision is broken down into the four main areas of need:
In order to ensure children's needs are met at the appropriate level, each are of needs is split into three sections, known as 'Waves'.
Quality First Teaching- Inclusive high quality teaching for all. A creative curriculum which includes learning through exciting topics and opportunities to link subject areas. This will include differentiated work being set in the classroom, to ensure we challenge and support each child appropriately.
Wave 2 interventions are designed to support children who are nearly working at age related expectations, but need some additional focused teaching to get there. Wave 2 interventions tend to be delivered to a number of children.
Wave 3 interventions are highly individualised and based on fine tuned assessments. Interventions at Wave 3 tend to be focused and time limited and are rigorously evaluated to ensure that pupils are making accelerated progress.
The academy currently has the following interventions available for children, but if a child was considered to need something different then this would be considered.
