We consistently demonstrate outstanding practice and provision for pupils with SEND, evidenced through successive Ofsted inclusion judgements which recognise the outstanding quality of provision, led by both teachers and teaching assistants. Key staff hold postgraduate qualifications relating to SEND and all members of our Inclusion Team have specialist knowledge related to the four main areas of need. Their knowledge, skills and experience have been recognised nationally, with our Head of Inclusion designated as a Specialist Leader in Education (SEN and behaviour). She has been invited to work alongside DfE colleagues to consult on national SEN developments. Our staff have also been commissioned by both the National Association of Special Educational Needs (NASEN) and Bath Spa University to facilitate nationally recognised and accredited training.
Our Head of Inclusion leads the alliance Learning Community which focuses on practice development using a research based approach.
