Croxteth Primary School is a mainstream school but we are able to accommodate children with a range of additional needs. We aim to ensure ALL children are included and able to access the same curriculum and enjoy the same learning opportunities. Croxteth believes that the key to supporting disabled pupils and pupils with special educational needs is through high-quality teaching with additional interventions, modification or amendments used where appropriate to remove barriers to learning, to ensure that good progress is made.

To do this, all pupils with SEND are tracked and monitored regularly in Reading, Writing & Maths and complete a Reading & Spelling age test once a term.

Following each assessment period, the attainment & progress of SEND pupils are discussed during pupil progress meetings with actions being taken where necessary to support learning further or to develop a further understanding of the child’s needs – for example: A request could be made for support or an assessment to take place from a specialist/outside agency or an intervention programme to be implemented.

In total, there are four broad areas of need and support:

  • Communication & Interaction (CI)- Autistic Spectrum Disorder (ASD), Speech Language and Communication Needs (SLCN)
  • Cognition & Learning (COG/L)- Moderate Learning Difficulties (MLD), Specific Learning Difficulty (SpLD) such as: Dyslexic, Dyspraxic or Dyscalculic.
  • Social, Emotional and Mental Health (SMEH) – Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD), Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD)
  • Sensory &/or Physical Needs – Hearing Impaired (HI), Visually Impaired VI, Physical Disability (PD)

At Croxteth, additional provision includes:

 Read, Write Inc Booster Groups,  Socially Speaking,  Family Engagement Officer, 1:1 Therapy, Speech and Language, Lego Therapy, Roar, Behaviour support, Mindfulness, EFT, Play Therapy,  Social/Friendship groups, Bereavement, Emotional Well-being
