Special Education Needs – Local Offer

At Holy Trinity Church School we believe that everyone can pursue their potential, whatever their ability or needs. We base our provision around the Somerset Core Standards for all children and young people (4 - 16)

We have high expectations of all our children and work towards ensuring that all pupils, including those with SEND, make the best possible progress at school.

All our children access and enjoy a wide range of varied, exciting learning opportunities, with quality first teaching in an inclusive environment at the heart of all that we do.

We embrace the fact that all children are individuals, who have unique educational and emotional needs and aspirations. As a result, children require different strategies for learning and can acquire, assimilate and communicate information at different rates. Using our UPLIFT philosophy, our approach to teaching and learning is adapted accordingly creating an exciting, challenging and nurturing learning environment. Below you will find a 'Provision Map' of some of the systems, resources and interventions that we can provide in our school. They are broken down into 4 key areas of need and also the range of need across the school, from 'universal' provision (for all children) to the support that children with the highest needs may access. The list is not exhaustive and not every child will need to access all. 

Miss Claire West is our SENDCO and Inclusion Leader.

Helpful Links and Policies 

We use an 'Assess, Plan, Do, Review' Process in school and this helps us to decide which children should be placed on the SEND register and to monitor and review those who are. Below is a flowchart which details this process:
