At Mickleton Primary School we believe that inclusive education means providing all pupils with appropriate education and support alongside their peers.
We follow the 'Gloucestershire Graduated Pathway' for children with SEND needs. In addition to this we have our own preliminary pathway for children whom we identify as having 'additional needs'.
Our curriculum promotes learning, personal growth and development. It includes not only the formal requirements of the National Curriculum but also the range of additional opportunities that our school provides to enrich the experiences of our children no matter where their strengths may be. Our inclusive approach and ethos enables all of our children to access their learning confidently and we offer support where necessary to ensure that every child has a positive and happy experience in school.
If you have any concerns about your child please do not hesitate to contact our school SENCO.
Our school SENCO is Miss Nikki Britt: firstname.lastname@example.org
Ten percent of the population are believed to be dyslexic, but it is still often poorly understood. With the right support, the strengths and talents of dyslexic people can really shine. (The Dyslexia society)
Our current CPD programme is focusing around dyslexia so that staff are trained and have an awareness of how to support any children who may have dyslexic tendencies.
At Mickleton School we use the Nessy Screening programme if we have any concerns that a child may have dyslexia. This screening programme is used widely across the country in school settings.
If you have any concerns about your child please contact Miss Britt (SENDCO) at school.
