Pupils with SEND
Pupils with Special Educational Needs or Disabilities (SEND)
At Millbrook Primary School and Nursery, we ensure that RSE is accessible for all pupils. We know that this is particularly important when planning teaching for pupils with special educational needs and disabilities. As in all other lessons, high quality teaching that is differentiated and personalised will be the starting point to ensure accessibility.
As set out in the SEND code of practice, when teaching these subjects to those with SEND, we aim to prepare pupils for the next phase of development to ensure positive adulthood outcomes.
We know that some pupils are more vulnerable to exploitation, bullying and other issues due to the nature of their SEND. Relationships Education and RSE can also be particularly important subjects for some pupils; for example, those with Social, Emotional and Mental Health needs or learning disabilities. This is considered when designing and teaching these subjects.
For some SEND pupils there may be a need to tailor content and teaching to meet the specific needs of pupils at different developmental stages. As with all teaching for these subjects, we will ensure that our teaching is sensitive, age-appropriate, developmentally appropriate and delivered with reference to the law. Where this is the case, teachers are expected to work with the SENCO and parents/carers to tailor the offer.
