Curriculum and SEND


Discovery Primary School is an inclusive school.  Students have a wide range of abilities and skill-sets, and we celebrate the achievements and progress of all. We make every effort to meet the needs of students who require additional support with their academic or social development and are proud of our reputation for successful SEND provision.


The SEND Code of Practice (2014), Equality Act (2010) and advice for schools DfE (2013) inform our practice at Discovery School for students with special educational needs and disabilities. We fully recognise our legal responsibility regarding the education of children with special educational needs and follow set procedures for assessment, target setting, provision and review of progress. The school’s SEND policy directs the work of all staff working at Discovery ensuring all students are fully included in the life of the school and are supported to achieve their potential.


The school makes full use of all agencies which can help to ensure that every child’s needs are met. These agencies include support guidance and advice from speech and language therapists, educational psychologists, social services and waterside behaviour intervention team. 

We work with a number of external agencies who are able to provide advice and support for our families.
