SEND and Inclusion

The staff and governors at Boothroyd Primary Academy recognise that all children have particular needs because all children are individuals who learn at their own pace.

The school has a policy on how we identify children with Additional Educational Needs (AEN.). Children are set individual learning goals or targets in an Individual Education Plan (IEP) that is unique to them. As well as outlining these targets a successful IEP also includes strategies that will be used to meet them and possibly special arrangements when a child may be supported either as an individual or as part of a small group. Each year group has a plan to show the provision made for all the children


Boothroyd is fortunate in having a number of experienced, qualified and caring support staff who work with children as individuals or in smaller groups to help meet targets in IEP’s.

Termly meetings between parents, support staff, class teacher and Special Educational Needs Co-ordinator (SENCO) provide an opportunity to measure a child’s progress against targets set in their IEP. When necessary, professionals from other services who have worked with the child may also attend these meetings to offer valued advice.
