At Marton Primary Academy and Nursery, we aim to provide every possible opportunity to develop the full potential of every child. Children with learning differences must be valued as individuals and should be encouraged to integrate fully with their peers, both socially and academically. They must have access to the whole curriculum; at all times consideration must be given to enhancing the self-esteem of children with additional needs. The aims of the provision for children with learning differences at Marton are to:
Children with additional needs will be included fully within the curriculum wherever possible, with the provision of support staff and appropriate differentiation in place
Marton Primary Academy and Nursery works in partnership with the Local Authority and Bright Futures Educational Trust to meet the needs of pupils with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND). We our proud of our inclusive approach towards pupils with additional needs and we are driven to provide high quality education for all pupils. We work closely with families and various professional partners to tailor provision on order to meet the needs of individual children.
The Blackpool Local Offer
The intention of Blackpool’s Local Offer is to improve choice and transparency for families. All schools and academies in Blackpool are expected to identify and support pupils with special educational needs to make the best possible progress. Schools are supported to be as inclusive as possible and wherever possible, the needs of pupils with a Special Educational Need are met in a mainstream setting, where families want this to happen. Blackpool’s Graduated Approach provides guidance on expectations of what should usually be available within school’s resources.
Parents/carers and their children can access support within school (see Special Educational Needs Policy above) and via Blackpool’s Local Offer website.
