Chiltern Primary School's Approach to Special Educational Needs and Disabilities

At Chiltern Primary School, our mission is to make learning irresistible for every child. We prioritize positive relationships and champion the unique abilities and potentials of each and every student. In line with the 2014 National Curriculum in England and our commitment to equal and diverse education, we ensure that we diminish differences for all pupils, including those with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND) and those eligible for pupil premium.


A Safe and Stimulating Learning Environment

We are dedicated to providing the very best pastoral support for all our pupils, ensuring a safe and stimulating learning environment. By fostering positive relationships, we create an inclusive atmosphere where every child feels valued and supported. Our highly trained and experienced staff are committed to understanding and meeting the individual needs of every student, including those with SEND.


Equal and Diverse Education

We understand the importance of acknowledging and appreciating individual differences, and strive to create an atmosphere where all our pupils feel a sense of belonging.

At Chiltern Primary School, we have higher than the national average numbers of pupils with SEND and Education, Health and Care Plans (EHCP). We recognize the importance of a personalized approach to education and ensure that our provision is tailored to meet the specific needs of each individual student. Our experienced staff work closely with external agencies to implement effective strategies and interventions that support our students in achieving their full potential.


Personalized Provision and Curriculum

To make learning irresistible for all our pupils, Chiltern Primary School offers personalized provision and curriculum adaptations.

This tailored approach enables us to provide the necessary support and interventions to help our students thrive academically, socially, and emotionally.

We believe in the power of collaboration between school and home. At Chiltern Primary School, we actively foster strong partnerships with parents and carers, recognizing that their insight and involvement play a crucial role in supporting our pupils with SEND.
