Horsmonden Primary School is a fully inclusive school. We are committed to ensuring that all children, regardless of any special or additional educational need, are enabled to make the best progress that they can. We have a Special Educational Needs Coordinator (SENCo), Mrs. Lisa Maynard, who is responsible for coordinating all aspects of Special Educational Needs (SEN) and Additional Educational Needs (AEN). Mrs. Maynard currently works every Friday and alternate Tuesdays. She can be reached on Senco@horsmonden.kent.sch.uk.
Staff members are trained to recognise any issues that are affecting a child’s learning at an early stage. Such issues are discussed at Pupil Progress Review Meetings which take place every term. Through these discussions, relevant help for the child can be agreed and implemented; this might take the form of further assessments, small group work or 1:1 work. Sometimes a child will be unable to access the curriculum without 1:1 support for all or part of the week and this can be arranged. All support is recorded on Provision Maps which set out the additional support that children receive and the impact of this support on their learning.
We believe that strong partnerships between the school and parents are vital to support the child’s learning. When an outside agency is involved with the child and family we also work closely with them to ensure positive outcomes for all concerned.
