    Starting School At Rugby Free Primary School, we believe it is incredibly important that children make a happy and settled start to their school life. Back to Parents our core values kindness red endeavour tint our core values 1/18 We want children to be excited about beginning their school journey with us and parents to feel informed and confident every step of the way. You're off to great places! Today is your day! Your mountain is waiting so... get on your way! Dr Seuss So you can make an informed choice about sending your child to us, we conduct regular tours of our lovely school so you can see for yourself the children at work. Once you have received confirmation of your child’s school place, we will be in touch with you to arrange a home visit. This allows us to meet your child in the environment where they feel most comfortable. It is an opportunity for parents to discuss your child and to ask questions about school life. It is a really valuable first opportunity to begin building the relationship between your child, family and our school, something which is so important to us. During the summer term before your child begins school, we will hold a parent’s information meeting and invite children for a play session in the Reception classroom. This is so helpful for children to visualise the setting and meet staff. You will be able to order specific items of uniform directly from the school during this time in preparation for September. We will also liaise with local nurseries children have attended to gain an understanding of their personalities, attainment and needs. In September, we will plan a staggered start for our Reception children during the first week. Children will attend school for shorter sessions at first, will then stay for lunch building up to a full days by the end of week one. We will let you know the timing of these days. Children do become physically and emotionally tired when they start school. Even when they are used to full days at nursery, the emotional demands of beginning school can be exhausting. We work hard to ensure the children have a settled beginning with us and become used to the setting and its routines as quickly as possible.

    Aims, Vision, Values our core values kindness red endeavour tint our core values 1/18 I know that each day my child will be loved, respected and challenged to try their very best. Our key aims are for all pupils to be given the correct support, teaching and curriculum opportunities they need to achieve their full potential academically, emotionally and socially. We want our pupils to be inspired by their learning and to enjoy school. We also want them to think about others, learn about the world around them and become respectful citizens of society. We want them to leave our school in Year 6 as confident, enthusiastic and motivated learners, ready to take on challenges in secondary education and make the most of opportunities in their lives. Aims Vision Our School and Trust (Learning Today, Leading Tomorrow) vision is: Aim High, Achieve Together, Celebrate Success Values We have six core values, which are central to the school and the trust, which are: ​ Kindness The quality of friendliness, generosity, consideration and honesty. ​ Collaboration The belief that working and learning with others will lead to greater success. ​ Curiosity A strong desire to know and to learn. ​ Respect To appreciate the importance of understanding and admiration for others and self. ​ Resilience The ability to recover quickly and learn from the difficulties we face. ​ Endeavour The belief that hard work is needed to achieve something we can be proud of.

    SEND Our SEND ethos is in line with the SEND Code of Practice which states: ​ “All children and young people are entitled to an appropriate education, one that is appropriate to their needs, promotes high standards and the fulfilment of potential. This should enable them to: Back to Key Information our core values kindness red endeavour tint our core values 1/18 achieve their best become confident individuals living fulfilling lives, and make a successful transition into adulthood, whether into employment, further or higher education or training We rise to great heights by a winding staircase of small steps. Francis Bacon At Rugby Free Primary School, our intention is to ensure that all children receive a high-quality education with a broad and balanced curriculum, which will help them to achieve success and reach their individual potential. We aim to equip pupils with skills necessary for success in life beyond their primary education, regardless of need or disability. We believe that this will help them to become curious and resilient learners, kind and respectful citizens with the skills to collaborate and continue to endeavour. Throughout our SEND provision, the children are at the centre of our work. We intend to build independence in our children with additional needs, through providing an accessible and engaging learning environment. We believe that partnership with parents and carers is vital, as well as working alongside external agencies and professionals to continuously improve our provision for children with additional needs. What is SEND? The SEND Code of Practice states: “A child or young person has Special Educational Needs (SEN) where their learning difficulty or disability calls for special educational provision, namely provision different from or additional to that normally available to pupils of the same age.” “A child has a learning difficulty or disability if he or she: has a significantly greater difficulty in learning than the majority of others of the same age, or has a disability which prevents or hinders him or her from making use of facilities of a kind generally provided for others of the same age in mainstream schools.” Additional needs can be grouped under four broad areas of need: Communication and Interaction Cognition and Learning Social, Emotional and Mental Health difficulties Sensory and/or Physical needs Linked to this, the SEND Code of Practice advises: “These four broad areas give an overview of the range of needs that should be planned for. The purpose of identification is to work out what action the school needs to take, not to fit a pupil into a category. In practice, individual children or young people often have needs that cut across all these areas and their needs may change over time..” Support at RFPS At Rugby Free Primary School, our staff follow the “Assess, Plan, Do, Review” cycle in order to effectively identify and support children with additional needs: Assess: class teachers closely monitor the progress made by all children and ask advice as soon as they have concerns about any pupil. Plan and Do: targeted support is planned and carried out, such as small group work, interventions or specific resources to help the child and these are closely monitored. Review: the support is reviewed to ascertain the impact and next steps are planned. Wherever possible and appropriate, this process is carried out in conjunction with the child and their parents/carers. A child receiving sustained special educational provision will be placed on the school SEND register. An Individual Support Plan (ISP) will be created alongside the child and their family, consisting of specific targets and an outline of additional provision. This plan will be reviewed and targets updated at 3 points through the year, following the Assess, Plan, Do, Review approach. Special Educational Provision at RFPS is matched to meet the children’s individual needs as far as possible. Our last Ofsted report (2018) stated: “Teachers identify pupils who would benefit from extra help effectively. The careful organization of classes enables pupils to receive daily, tailored support to address any gaps in learning they may have or to meet their social and emotional needs. Staff receive training to enable them to deliver a range of highly effective interventions.” Additional provision may involve a range of support including: Individualised resources or tools Small literacy/numeracy groups Sensory aids Visual aids Social skills groups Adaptations of teaching and learning If a child requires further or more targeted support, this is provided through a range of external support agencies.

Parent Information The Special Educational Needs and Disabilities Co-ordinator at RFPS is Emily Hearle. Please contact her through the school office for further information about SEND support at RFPS. Please also refer to the school SEND information report and the SEND policy.
