SEND

At Gulval School we offer a high quality, inclusive education for all pupils underpinned by the ALAT principals of ‘Learn’, ‘Grow’ and ‘Prosper’.

Our exciting, creative and challenging curriculum is differentiated to meet the needs of all pupils and delivered through strong, quality first teaching.

The individual teaching and learning needs of each pupil is central to our vision. We aim to identify individual needs early and put in place the right support for those who need it. The progress of pupils is reviewed regularly – additional layers of support are identified and implemented through this process.

Gulval School works closely with other agencies to support children and families. Children with more complex needs may be supported by an Education, Health and Care Plan (reviewed twice per year) – this process ensures partnership working to identify and meet needs. Partnership with parents is highly valued – and recognised as an important factor in ensuring children make excellent progress at school.

In accordance with the SEND Code of Practice 0–25 (Sept 2014) we consider that every teacher at Gulval School is a teacher of children with special educational needs. We aim to raise the skills and training of all teaching and non- teaching staff so that our approach to Special Educational Needs and Disability is shared across the whole school.

Penwith Child Development Centre, a specialist pre-school assessment provision for children with complex and long term learning difficulties is based on the school site. The CDC Lead teacher is also the school SENCO and she and the SEN support staff work together to provide assessment, intervention and learning support within the school.
