  • The Inclusion Team provide high quality training so that teachers are equipped in meeting those needs
  • Teachers and teaching assistants meet regularly to plan to meet a student’s needs
  • The quality of teaching for students with SEND and provision across the school is efficiently managed
  • There is high quality support in place in classrooms
  • There are regular intervention sessions offered in the Inclusion Team Area during form time, lunchtimes and break times
