Loseley Fields is an inclusive school where every teacher is a teacher of SEND.
As a school, we ensure that all staff, teachers and teaching assistants, are well trained and resourced to meet the needs of each individual learner. We provide an environment where children with SEND can learn alongside their peers. Our SEND team work with families to ensure that the provision meets the needs of their child, enabling them to make progress in their learning.
We want all of our children to develop a passion for learning; a hunger for knowledge; an enquiring mind and an innovative approach to key areas of the curriculum that will stay with them always.
We respect every child’s desire to reach their full learning potential in a safe and secure environment. It is vital that we continually review and assess pupils’ progress; always recognise and praise achievement; celebrate individuality; give encouragement and support when it gets tough and provide direction so that they achieve their very best. This is an exciting and ever-evolving journey. At every point we all have an opportunity to support and make a difference in our young people’s lives.
High quality teaching and a love of learning are central to children’s success at Loseley Fields Primary School. We want all children to reach for their star, but some children will need more support to overcome barriers to their learning.
We do our best to identify children with special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEND) as early as possible. Any concerns are shared with parents and then together we decide how best to support the child’s learning difficulty or, in the case of a more able child, how to challenge their special abilities. Our vision for children with SEN is set out in the school’s special educational needs policy, up-dated on an annual basis. A copy of this policy can be found below or can be obtained from the school office.
We follow a graduated response to supporting children’s SEND at Loseley Fields and further details can be found in the school’s SEND information report and provision map, available below. These documents show how the provision at Loseley Fields contributes to Surrey’s local offer for children and young people with SEND, which can be found at www.surreysendlo.co.uk
The Solar Centre is a Specialist Centre for children who may need specialist teaching for learning and communication, but would benefit from accessing mainstream provision. We currently have 12 places for children in KS2. All children in the Solar Centre have a statement of SEN or an Education and Health Care Plan. Admission to the Solar Centre is via a county wide forum in November of each year and details can be found on the Surrey Local Offer website.
Admission criteria for children with disabilities will follow the admissions policy agreed by the school’s governing body.
All pupils within Loseley Fields Primary School are treated equally. Expectations of achievement and effort are high and each child is asked to do their best at all times, achieving together..
The school is currently on one ground level with the exception of the building at the rear of the school which has two levels. This building has no lift. We would ensure that any child with disabilities had full access to our curriculum, making arrangements to move classrooms if necessary. Full disabled access is provided to the main area of the school in addition to disabled toilet facilities.
Loseley Fields Primary School is an inclusive and supportive school enabling all pupils to have equal access to learning.
