HOW WILL THE TEACHING APPROACHES AND THE CURRICULUM BE MATCHED TO MY CHILD'S/ YOUNG PERSON'S NEEDS?
Our teaching staff differentiate their lessons to match the needs of all of the children within our school. Maths in Y6-Y1 and for phonics in FS/KS1, the children are grouped into ability groups to ensure that the children can be targeted specifically on the areas where they have problems. We also group the children into smaller ability groups within our classes for Literacy and Maths. Those children needing further support then work with an adult who can guide them during the lessons.
Some children will also work on extra intervention programmes to support their needs. These interventions help the children to close the gaps they have in their knowledge and skills.
We aim to provide an inclusive, creative, child led curriculum that will equip the children to be successful in life. This is underpinned by the Special Educational Needs Code of Practice.
If a child is working in our KS1/FS Nurture Group or KS2 Nurture Provision, they will work on an adapted curriculum which has a focus on Emotional ad Social aspects of learning as well as an academic curriculum matched to their ability level.
All teaching and work is monitored regularly by the SENCo and Senior Leadership Team (SLT) and Phase leaders. Subject Leaders also monitor planning whilst monitoring, the subjects English, Maths, Science, The curriculum and the Foundation Stage curriculum. Staff at Gladstone have high expectations in teaching and learning for all children within the school.
