Supporting Children with SEN  

The Special Educational Needs Code of Practice lies at the heart of the school’s SEND policy and sets out the processes and procedures that all organisations should follow to meet the needs of children. The Code describes a graduated approach which recognises that children learn in different ways and can have different kinds of SEN. So increasingly, step-by-step support and specialist expertise can be put in place to help overcome the difficulties that a child may have. If further support is required the school may request a statutory assessment of special needs, which may result in a Statement of SEN (which is being replaced by a EHC Plan) being issued to the child. Our SENCO is Mrs. Louise Proudman. She can be contacted via the admin. office telephone number and email address.

Ensuring Equality

 At  Burton-on-the-Wolds Primary School, we believe that all children should be guaranteed equal access to a broad and balanced curriculum regardless of gender, sexual orientation, race, culture, religion, social class, disability or special educational need. Both children and adults should expect to be treated fairly and have the same entitlement as every other child or person. They know this by what is said and what happens at an operational level. 

Equality and diversity issues are integral to all we do. Everyone in the school knows that, if they think/feel that they are being treated unfairly and they think it may be to do with their gender, sexual orientation, race, religion, social class, disability or special educational need, they should say so, and they should expect this to be investigated and that any issues that emerge to be addressed. 

Equality Objectives 2017-19

There is no difference in the admission arrangements for pupils with special educational needs who do not have a statement to the arrangements for other pupils

Disability Duty – Accessibility and Future Plans

Under the Disability Equality Duty schools are required to take proactive steps to ensure their disabled pupils, staff and governors, parents / carers and other people using the school are treated equally. Schools are required to establish a Disability Scheme to promote equality of opportunity for disabled pupils. Currently, our school has good facilities and access for disabled pupils within the physical environment, including disabled toilet facilities and ramps into the school.

How British Values are promoted at Burton on the Wolds Primary School.

At Burton on the Wolds Primary School we value each and every member of our school community as individuals and respect their rights and freedom. Through our school values, which were decided upon by pupils, we promote the values of:

Rule of Law

Individual Liberty

Mutual Respect and Tolerance of Those with Different Faiths and Beliefs

Behaviour principles written statement – Burton on the Wolds Primary School


With reference to the Department for Education’s guidance – Behaviour and discipline in schools, the Pupils and Curriculum committee agreed that the values drawn up by pupils are what lie behind everything the school stands for: Honesty, Empathy, Respect, Forgiveness and Belief and this lies behind the pupil mission statement for the school: ‘Our school is where we learn to achieve, be confident, to care and stay safe.’

The committee request that when the Head writes the behaviour policy it should reflect these values. The committee would like the Head to make clear in the policy the schools approach to:

The committee has confidence in Burton staff to use their professional judgment to apply the behaviour policy fairly.
