Special Educational Needs and Disabilities

At Clutton Primary School, we strive to support all our children and enable them to reach their full potential at school. In order to do this, many steps are taken to support them through their learning journey.

Quality teaching is vital; however, for some children there are occasions when further additional support may be needed to help them achieve their targets.

At Clutton, we evaluate the effectiveness of its provision for these pupils through:

  • careful monitoring and frequent reviews to ensure that each child is working at the stage appropriate to their needs and is making progress

  • early identification of any child’s difficulties or strengths

  • a child who feels pleased and confident at the progress they are making

  • each pupil fulfilling their potential.

We aim to identify and provide appropriate support for all children who require additional help at school. The school has a consistent approach to teaching children with SEND. Termly reviews ensure each child is receiving the most appropriate level of support and targets are set for each child to work on through their target folders which are assessed before the next review meeting.

A few of the tools we use in school to support all children's learning include:

Jigsaw learning modules for PHSE learning and support
NEXUS Peg to Paper

Forest School

Forest School nurture Sessions


Small group interventions

Bath and North East Somerset Community CAMHS is a specialist service that helps children and young people who are struggling with a range of different mental health issues.

Pupils with special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEND) get the right help. Staff know the pupils well. Individual pupil plans are precise and regularly reviewed. The school works closely with parents and external agencies to meet pupils’ individual needs. As a result, most pupils with SEND learn the same curriculum as their peers.
