Our offer at Duxford Primary School

At Duxford Church of England Community Primary School we aim to provide high quality teaching to enable all of our children to develop confidently and to the very best of their ability. Therefore, every teacher in our school is a teacher of every child including those with SEND. We seek to promote a happy school atmosphere with an emphasis on self-respect and respect for others thereby raising the aspirations of and expectations for, all pupils with SEND. Those of our children who have Special Educational Needs and/or Disability will be given individual consideration and appropriate provision working in partnership with parents, staff and external providers, as necessary, to focus on positive outcomes for our pupils. All pupils whether they have Special Educational Needs and Disability or not, must have an equal opportunity to participate in the full curriculum of the school (including the National Curriculum) and all activities. Pupils with Special Educational Needs and/or Disability will be encouraged to become independent and take responsibility within the school. The aim of this document is to give information about how we support children with SEND in our school. SEND is classified into four areas of need identified in the Code of Practice (April 2015) as:
