SEND & Equality


At Snodland Primary School we understand the importance of helping each child reach their full potential; we ensure that every child is fully included in all school activities.  We appreciate that all children are individuals and that they learn in different ways.  Our school works hard to make sure that Special Educational Needs are identified early in order for us to create the ideal learning environment for each child. 

We are proud of the excellent relationship we have with a range of outside agencies which allows us to seek support or additional facilities should we need them.  Staff work closely with parents to share information.  Our Inclusion Manager is Nicola Smith and our SENCO is Ashley Bentley.  They can be reached via the School Office if you have any concerns or queries about your child or by emailing: office@snodland.kent.sch.uk

Snodland CEP School Equality Objectives

We take pride at Snodland Church of England Primary School in being a fully inclusive school.  We are committed to meeting the main aims of the Equality Act (2010) and feel that our Equalities objectives help us to meet these aims which are to:

·         Eliminate unlawful discrimination

·         Advance equality of opportunity

·         Foster good relations

 
In line with our Christian vision of ‘Living Life to the Full, to the Glory of God’, all staff have high expectations of each and every child and encourage them to have high aspirations, regardless of their race, gender, age, ability or social background.  Our nurturing learning environment ensures that all children are able to participate fully in activities as each child is known and respected as an individual, which allows us to tailor learning for their needs.  Staff are also treated equally and are encouraged to reach their potential, whilst taking into account their individual needs and circumstances. 

All school stakeholders are committed to tackling prejudice, if it should arise, and will work alongside the local community and families to promote tolerance and acceptance of all. 

 
Our Objectives are:
 

·         To ensure the school environment is accessible for all children, staff, families and visitors to the school

·         To treat all staff and children equally and ensure they have access to equal rights and opportunities

·         To diminish the difference between disadvantaged children and their peers

·         To make sure all learning is differentiated to meet the individual learning needs of children, including those with specific Special  Educational Needs or/ and disabilities and those who are identified as being More Able and Talented

·         To ensure the learning environment reflects a wide range of children of different abilities

·         To create a curriculum that extends the children’s understanding of the wider world and that promotes social, moral, spiritual and cultural development

·         To eliminate prejudice and bullying by educating the children in this area and ensuring that any discrimination is challenged and dealt with promptly by Senior Leaders

·         To ensure all children have the same access to: after-school clubs, educational trips and any extra-curricular opportunities

·         To allow all parents equal access to information regarding their children
