SEND Information

Inclusion is at the heart of what we do

Ashton Park School is committed to inclusion. We believe that all students, including those identified as having Special Educational Needs and/or Disabilities (SEND) have an entitlement to a broad and balanced academic and social curriculum, which is accessible to them. We support all of our students to be fully included in all aspects of school life and our community. 

Curriculum

Ashton Park School uses Quality First Teaching to meet the needs of all students. Subject teachers adapt their teaching to support those with additional needs.

Students identified as requiring further support may access evidence-based intervention work. Interventions run in different formats, such as six week interventions. 

Students with an Education, Health and Care Plan (EHCP) in addition to evidence-based interventions may be further supported in class by Learning Support Assistants if outlined in their Section F as appropriate.

All students on our Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND) register have an Ashton Park SEND Pupil Profile that outlines their voice and strategies to support their additional learning needs that are beyond Quality First teaching.

Staffing


At Ashton Park School all staff are committed to supporting students with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND). Tutors are the first point of contact for students listed on our Special Education Needs and Disabilities (SEND) register; some students requiring further support may have an identified key worker. 

In addition to the above, we have:

      • Senior Leader - SENCo
      • SEND Administrative Assistant

Specialist Speech and Language Resource Base team:

  • Assistant SENCo - Resource Base Lead
  • Two specialist SEND teachers

  • An external Speech & Language therapist (1 day a fortnight)

Mainstream Team:

  • An intervention teacher

We work in collaboration with other teams in the school to support students:

      • The Curriculum team: Subject specialist teachers, Subject Leads

We liaise with a variety of outside agencies where students need support beyond our core SEND offer available at Ashton Park. 

Further details can be found in our SEND Information Report, which forms part of our SEND policy.

Specialist Resource Base (Speech, Language and Communication needs)

Ashton Park School is proud to run a Specialist Resource Base for students with Speech, Language and Communication Needs. There are 25 places in total across Key Stages 3 and 4, for students with Education, Health and Care Plans.

Access to this provision is via consultation only through the Local Authority’s SEND team as part of your child’s Key Stage Transfer annual review. Details of the Resource Base curriculum can be found on our website.

Pupil Support Room

The Pupil Support Room offers support for students with social, emotional and mental health needs identified as needing additional support and early-intervention. 

The interventions range from six week 1:1 and group work programs to key worker support. The interventions run in conjunction with the student's timetabled mainstream curriculum.
