SEND Remote Learning
Remote Learning for pupils with SEND
At Buckden CE Primary Academy, whilst we recognise that most pupils will be able to continue their learning via a remote platform during a period of self-isolation, we understand that some children with Special Educational needs will face particular barriers. For this reason, we will make the following adjustments to the remote learning plan:
For pupils with an EHCP plan, the teaching assistant who usually works with that child will make daily contact with them, via Teams, to offer support in accessing learning tasks or to provide tasks that meet the targets set out in their Individual Education Plan (IEP). The teacher may also make regular contact with the pupil to offer direct instruction and differentiation of tasks set. Dependent on the needs of the individual, we would expect that these children would also access any live or pre-recorded video sessions that the teacher provides to the class, if the whole bubble is isolating.
For higher needs SEN pupils who not have an EHCP, the class teacher and/or teaching assistant will provide more bespoke learning tasks and/or differentiation of the tasks set, which are tailored to their needs. These could be in the form of games, worksheets, activities or visual resources that may be appropriate to support the home learning. We would still expect these children to access any live or pre-recorded video sessions that is being provided by the teacher, if the whole bubble is isolating.
For those children with recognised SEND and on our SEND register, but who are able to access the mainstream content of lessons, we would expect them to follow the main programme of learning set by the class teacher.
We would ask that the parent/carers of these children liaise with the class teacher to report on how well their child is able to access the learning, so that any further adjustments can be made.
