SEND at Kirkstone House School

At Kirkstone House School, we recognise that pupils have different educational needs and abilities. We understand that all pupils learn and acquire knowledge in different ways and at varying rates. It is our responsibility to adapted to the individual’s needs including those with disabilities; those with special educational needs; those from all cultural backgrounds and pupils with English as an additional language. All pupils may have special needs at different times and therefore a wide range of strategies are used to meet these as they arise. Learning diversity is recognised and planned for; any barriers to learning and participation are challenged and removed and all pupils are provided with equality of opportunity, so that they can harness their own creativity and talents. At all points we include the family in decision making and listen to the voice of the child.

We have produced a Padlet which contains all of the resources that we have in one place. You can access the Padlet through the link below, it can be can opened in the browser on your phone, tablet or computer.
