SEND

In order to provide the best possible education for all of our pupils at Abbott, we set ourselves high standards and clear aims: We aim to create a happy, caring environment where everyone develops self-esteem and self-discipline; where everyone feels valued, confident and motivated in all aspects of school life.

The progress of all pupils is monitored closely every half term. Any child may have additional educational needs at some point during his/her school time in school. If a pupil requires support that is additional to, or different from the quality first teaching that takes place in the classroom, provision will be made for them to have 1:1 or small group support to help them to close gaps in their learning. This may take place in the classroom during learning time or during maths review time at the end of the day. This is called 'Wave 2' level. If a pupil requires significant support, they will be given 1:1 or small group support through a named intervention programme. At Wave 3 level, this will mean that they are placed on the school's Special Educational Needs and Disablities register. They may not stay on the register for long and we will always let you know when they are added/removed as well as keeping you updated on the progress that they are making. This is explained in more detail in our SEND Policy and in our SEND Information Report. Our new Abbott Waves of Intervention document explains how we decide what is 'additional to or different from', in more detail.

We recognise the special needs of gifted children at Abbott and we strive to  ensure that the quality and provision of teaching and learning matches their ability to ensure that they may fulfil their potential.

Children with an Educational Health and Care Plan [EHCP] in mainstream classes are given additional support according to their needs and outcomes. Those children with learning difficulties are assisted according to their needs by both the school and external agencies, such as educational psychologists, speech and language therapists, learning impaired specialists, etc.

Details about help and support available in Manchester for all families with children with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities can be accessed through Manchester's Local Offer. This includes contact details for Information, Advice and Support [IAS] Manchester. This is an independent service which is available to support parents and carers to increase their involvement in the education of their children with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND).

Some children may be referred to CAMHS [Child and Adolescent Mental Health] by a school or health professional. They offer assessment and treatment when children and young people have emotional, behavioural or mental health difficulties. Advice can be downloaded from our Parent Advice Page.
