The Trustees and staff of Milton Primary Academy are committed to providing an appropriate and high quality education to all our children.
We believe that all children, including those identified as having special educational needs have a common entitlement to a broad and balanced academic and social curriculum, which is accessible to them, and that they should be fully included in all aspects of academy life. We believe that all children should be equally valued.
We will strive to eliminate prejudice and discrimination, and to develop an environment where all children can flourish and feel safe.
The aims of the special educational needs provision at Milton Primary Academy are:-
• To enable pupils to reach an appropriate level of cross-curricular reading and spelling commensurate with their ability, but not necessarily their chronological age.
• To support pupils with greater difficulty in learning than the majority of children of that year group.
• To define the need as early as possible in the pupil’s education and as soon as the need becomes evident.
• To address the individual needs of children with specific learning difficulties through a structured and well-defined system.
Children with Disabilities
We are committed to meeting the needs of these children, as we are to meeting the needs of all groups of children within our school. The school fully meets the requirements of the amended Disability Discrimination Act that came into effect in September 2002. All reasonable steps are taken to ensure that these children are not placed at a substantial disadvantage compared to non-disabled children.
The academy is committed to providing an environment that allows disabled children full access to all areas of learning. All our classroom entrances are wide enough for wheelchair access, and the designated points of entry for our academy also allows wheelchair access.
Teachers modify teaching and learning expectations as appropriate for children with disabilities. For example, they may give additional time to complete certain activities, or they may modify teaching materials. In their planning teachers ensure that they give children with disabilities the opportunity to develop skills in practical aspects of the curriculum.
