Inclusion & SEND

At Aureus School, we believe that education is about developing the whole person. Our mission statement: ‘Nurturing Hearts and Minds’, is fully inclusive of all students with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND) and encompasses the aspirations of all.

We are committed to providing an enhancing education where all students achieve academic success. Our inspirational and challenging curriculum allows all abilities to flourish with self-confidence to thrive. We are committed to helping every student with SEND to access a high quality education which meets their ability, interests and aspirations and which enables them to enjoy success in their learning.

We promote inclusion of all students and recognise students’ entitlement to a broad and balanced curriculum whilst meeting their individual needs. We recognise that some students may require more support than others and we aim to plan accordingly. Every individual is valued, learning is enjoyed, success is celebrated and responsibility is shared enabling our students to grow into responsible, questioning citizens who play a full and active role in society.

We use the Thrive Approach across the whole school to support the children as they learn to think about their emotions, choices and friendships so that they are able to develop into confident, skilful young people who enjoy learning and respect each other.

We aim through our inclusive approach, to provide support to students and staff to ensure that all students with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND) have an equal opportunity to meet or exceed their potential regardless of their ability or disability.

Our ultimate goal is to make our students independent and resilient learners, ready to leave school and venture into the world of further education or work.

The Inclusion Team at Aureus School is comprised of experienced and dedicated teachers and teaching assistants and is managed by the Special Educational Needs and Disablilties Coordinator (SENDCO).  The role of the SENDCO is to ensure a smooth transfer of SEND pupils from primary school and to ensure that appropriate provision is in place once at Aureus School. 

Please do not hesitate to contact the SENDCO, Sarah Hassell, if you have any enquiries around SEND.
