Etz Chaim Jewish Primary School

Inclusion and SEND


At Etz Chaim Jewish Primary School we firmly believe that all children have an entitlement to be educated alongside their peers in their local community. As an inclusive community, we are deeply committed to removing the barriers to learning and participation that can hinder or exclude individual pupils, or groups of pupils. Equality of opportunity is a reality for all our children within school and we all work a relentlessly as a team to ensure this.

We ensure that our curriculum is accessible for all of our pupils, including those with disabilities or special educational needs.

We provide support to all our parents, through meetings and our termly SEN surgeries, as we understand the vital role our families play in the well-being and development of their children and the importance of working together as a team.

We provide support for children with a wide range of special educational needs including those with:

  • Communication and interaction needs; this includes children who have speech language and communication difficulties including autistic spectrum conditions.
  • Cognition and Learning needs; this includes children who have learning difficulties and specific learning difficulties like dyslexia, dyspraxia and dyscalculia.
  • Social, Emotional and Mental Health needs.
  • Sensory and/or Physical needs; this includes children who have visual or hearing needs, or a physical disability that affects their learning.

We ensure that children receive personalised interventions and pastoral care, whether it is for their social and emotional needs, special educational needs, disabilities, behaviour, mental health or medical needs. We support teachers and parents to identify and meet the needs of every child, providing opportunities for real-life learning and work with a wide range of external agencies and professionals to ensure the best possible provision for our vulnerable pupils.
