Special Educational Needs & Disability

Ashtree is an inclusive school. We believe that learning must be relevant and appropriate to the child’s needs at the time.

Access to Education

The school adheres to the County’s Admission Policy and does not discriminate against any pupil applying for admission.

The Equality Act 2010; the Children and Families Act 2014 and the associated SEN & Disability Code of Practice 2014: 0-25 years, makes it unlawful for schools and their LEA to discriminate against disabled pupils, or pupils with medical needs, for a reason relating to their disability.

Ashtree Primary School & Nursery is an inclusive school and may offer a range of provision to support children with SEND, over and above Quality First Teaching for all.

Please see the SEND Information report/Local Offer for further details:

The Equality Act 2010; the Children and Families Act 2014 and the associated SEN & Disability Code of Practice 2014: 0-25 years, requires schools to promote equality of opportunity for disabled pupils.

The governors have drawn up an Access/Accessibility Plan for Ashtree School to comply with this legislation This plan identifies potential solutions for assisting access within the school.

The school have used the Schools Access Initiative to fund projects such as the installation of stair lifts, ramps and a toilet with disabled access. Pupils whose disability or medical need impacts on their learning may require an SEN Support Plan.

The Governors have drawn up a SEND Information Report/Local Offer and a SEND policy which is fully implemented, monitored and reviewed at least annually. A copy of this policy is available from the School Office. The Governors have drawn Equal Opportunities and Inclusion policies, which ensure that no pupil is treated less favourably than another. A copy of these policies are available from the School Office.

Most Able Pupils

At Ashtree we believe in treating all pupils as individuals, therefore catering for their individual needs. We recognise that some of our pupils have specific gifts in one or more subjects and/ or talents in the arts or sports. Teachers plan activities to meet the needs of these pupils through the following strategies – acceleration, enrichment or extension. Additional resources/materials may be used to extend a pupil’s thinking skills within a topic.
