Inclusion and SEND

Inclusion and SEND Provision 

Bolshaw Primary School is a one form entry mainstream primary school. It is a vibrant, multi-cultural, inclsuive school with enthusiastic pupils and a dedicated, committed team of staff who have high aspirations for all children. We are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and expect all staff to share this commitment.

At Bolshaw Primary School we ensure that the needs of all children are met. First and foremost, this is achieved through a broad and balanced innovative and dynamic curriculum. We also make active use of assessment to make sure that each child receives the challenge and support that is needed to help them to make progress. 

Many of our children achieve well beyond age-related expected standards of attainment. Extension activities are provided for these children, to allow them to extend and apply their learning in a range of exciting, real-world contexts. We ensure that children on our gifted and talented register are stretched and extended on a daily basis.

We also have a rigorous provision for children with special educational needs. Our provision for these children is outlined in detail here: Bolshaw Primary School SEN Information Report below. We want all children to achieve and excel irrespective of their background or their barriers to learning, and we wish to engender an inclusive school culture. The SEND Policy below, further outlines the school’s approach to catering for the needs of all children.

We provide a fully inclusive main stream primary provision, our aim being to help children aspire and achieve their potential academically, personally, socially and emotionally in all areas of the curriculum regardless of their gender, ethnicity, social background, religion, sexual identity, physical ability or educational needs.

Children who have a Special Educational Need and/or Disability (SEND) are expected to make outstanding progress. Outlined in our School Information Report 2022-23 are ways in which Bolshaw Primary School supports all of our pupils including those with Special Education Needs and Disabilities (SEND) in order that they realise their full potential.

Bolshaw School Information Report

This document was written in collaboration with parents and governors and is intended to give you information regarding the ways in which we ensure we support all of our pupils, including those with SEND, in order that they can realise and reach their full potential. This is not an exhaustive list, as the resources and techniques we employ in order to achieve this are continually developed and used to modify our provision to meet the changing requirements for individual pupils.
