Pupil Support and SEN
At Cale Green Primary School, our aim is to provide the best possible education for all the children so that they achieve the very best that they can.
All our pupils receive ‘Quality First Teaching’. This means that a range of teaching and learning approaches are used and that appropriate learning objectives are set for all pupils with a curriculum matched to their needs.
All our classes are supported by teaching assistants and pupils are also offered small group work or catch up programmes if needed.
Some pupils are supported to develop their social skills or to improve their emotional well-being through work with our Learning Mentor.
Each term the progress and attainment of every pupil is reviewed by teachers, the Special Educational Needs and Disability Coordinator, and the Assessment Coordinator. This review will highlight those children who may need additional support (interventions) and provision is then made.
You will be informed about your children’s general progress through Parent Consultations that take place three times a year and through a detailed written report on your child at the end of the academic year.
If your child continues to have any difficulties after following an intervention programme or has a high level of additional need when they join the school, they may be considered to have Special Educational Needs.
You may have concerns about your child and feel that they need additional help. The separate tabs have been designed to inform you of the types of support available for your child at Cale Green Primary School. It will give you information on who can help and how this support can be accessed. From September 2014, the Children and Families Bill (2013) came into effect.
If you would like further information, please contact Mr Marshall, Head teacher or Mrs Harding, our Special Educational Needs and Disability Co-ordinator (SENDCo) on 0161 480 2715 or email school:
