Special Educational Needs

Horsmonden Primary Academy is a fully inclusive school. We are committed to ensuring that all children, regardless of any special or additional educational need, are enabled to make the best progress that they can. 

Our Special Educational Needs team includes; 

  • Mrs Lisa Maynard (SENCo – Special Educational Needs Coordinator) 
  • Mrs Julie Kerr (SEN Teacher)

Mrs Lisa Maynard is responsible for coordinating all aspects of SEN and currently works every Tuesday and Wednesday.  She can be contacted on Lisa.Maynard@horsmondenprimaryacademy.org.uk

Regular meetings between the Principal, SENCo and teaching staff ensure that any issues affecting a child’s learning is recognised at any early stage.  From this point, each child is included in a termly Pupil Progress Meeting which uses provision mapping to plan, action and review interventions in place and the impact on their learning.  

Individual provision may consist of one or more of the following; quality first teaching classroom strategies, further assessments, small group work, 1:1 targeted intervention or referral to an outside agency.  Please see the SEN Information Report below for a list of assessments and interventions available. 

To ensure positive outcomes for all, a strong partnership between the school and parents is vital.  Therefore we regularly meet and work closely with parents to support a child’s learning.
