SEN and Disability Local Offer

We have created an inclusive culture in our school; providing successful and challenging learning, within a broad and balanced curriculum framework.

In addition, we provide high quality teaching to all learners taking into account and planning for individual’s specific needs. We aim to ensure an inclusive learning environment, which meets the needs of all members of our school community. Any adaptations to the curriculum are based on individual needs, which support and challenge them appropriately. This support should be appropriate to the young person’s age and needs and should aim to overcome barriers to learning. At Up Holland, staff continually monitor students’ progress ensuring that learning is taking place for all. Regular meetings between the SENCo, Heads of Year, and other relevant staff are held to discuss students’ progress.

In the cases where additional support is required we have a dedicated team of full and part time Learning Support Assistants, some of whom work with designated students on a one to one basis. Learning Support Assistants all have a specialism such as literacy, numeracy, handwriting, etc and regularly attend training courses and receive regular pupil updates. If you have any questions about our SEND provision at the school then please contact Ms C Cooney, SENCo on 01695 625191 or email c.cooney@upholland.lancs.sch.uk
