Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND)
At Magna Carta, our pupils and staff have equal opportunities. We also strive for equity. This is why we cannot say that everyone is treated in exactly the same way, because if we did, it would put some pupils at a disadvantage.
We teach to the top, which means we have high expectations of everyone. This doesn’t mean we give all pupils exactly the same learning tasks as each other and let them be.
It means we scaffold learning so pupils who would otherwise be given a differentiated task, can achieve the task that the ‘perceived’ more able pupils can achieve.
If a pupil has special educational needs which prevent them from accessing the learning, we make reasonable adjustments and put in support to enable them to achieve the very best they can achieve.
