The curriculum is planned to be multi-sensory in order to support children’s differing learning styles.
In order to meet the learning needs of all children, teachers differentiate teaching and learning and the activities they provide on a daily basis. Where children are identified as having special educational needs, the school provides for these additional needs in a variety of ways. The provision for children is related specifically to their needs.
All children and young people with special educational needs or disabilities (SEND) should be able to reach their full potential in school. At Muxton Primary this means giving them access to the school building, the outside environment, the curriculum and the wider school life.
Progress & Assessment
Good progress for children with special educational needs is the same as good progress for all children- we assess and track all children’s progress and attainment on a regular basis using our in school systems.
Transition is crucial to ensure children are prepared for Reception or their next class or next school and that staff have all the information about each individual child they need to ensure the transition is smooth.
At Muxton, the onsite preschool aged children are invited to attend transition mornings and afternoons during the summer term. Close links are maintained with other nursery settings allowing for effective information sharing. On starting school, children in Reception have a phased start.
As children progress through each year and key stage group, close communication and information sharing is maintained between teachers and support staff allowing for smooth transitions.
Close links are created with secondary schools to ease transition into the children’s secondary phase of education.
Each class in KS1 and KS2 elects 2 representative members for the school council. The school council meets regularly to discuss ideas to be considered for implementation in school.
Parents are welcome to contribute to Muxton School through open conversations with school staff, becoming a parent governor and through becoming a member of ‘Friends of Muxton’ school. They are also welcome to discuss concerns with their child’s classteacher or the school’s SENCo.
Parents receive regular updates to events and news in school through our school website.
