Avanti Court Primary School

Avanti Court is an Academy and part of the Avanti Schools Trust. It provides places for 90 pupils per year group from EYFS to Year 5 and 120 places in Year 6. The school also has a 52 place nursery. We aim to develop a small school model so that every child is well known, challenged and inspired to be the best they can be. The school serves a diverse community in which people from all backgrounds, faiths and other world views are welcomed who are interested in their child having a Hindu-influenced educational experience.

Currently, as of September 2023, we have over 40  children on the SEND register.

We work towards ensuring that all pupils regardless of their SEND needs make the best possible progress in school. Our motto states: ‘Everybody is welcome and everyone is included’

Education Offer


Avanti Court is an Hindu faith school which started in 2012,for boys and girls aged four to eleven. The School was set up in response to demand for primary school places in Redbridge and is set to be a world-class school. The recent 2018 Ofsted report stated that the school remains a good school with outstanding features.

Currently there are 780 pupils on roll; however from last September 2018 the school has reduced to a 3 form entry school which will provide places for 90 pupils per year group. We aim to develop a small school model so that every child is well known, challenged and inspired to be the best they can be. The school serves a diverse community in which people from all background, faith and other world views are welcomed who are interested in their child having a Hindu-influenced educational experience.


Identifying children's needs

We identify specific needs of children by the following:

  • High Quality First Teaching in every classroom for every pupil (this includes appropriate work matched to pupils’ abilities and needs)
  • Where concerns are raised regarding progress of individual pupils, class teachers liaise with the school’s SENCO (Inclusion) to discuss the child’s areas of strength and their difficulties.
  • rom there, the SENCO and Inclusion Manager will undertake, if it is deemed necessary, a thorough assessment of the pupil’s abilities and needs.  At this stage, standardised assessments will be used as part of the school’s toolkit for assessing pupil needs.
  • Once the results of the assessments have been established, an individual plan will be created for the pupil.  This will outline the package of support that will be in place to meet the needs of the assessment outcomes.
  • Meetings are held between the teacher and SENCO to discuss progress and outcomes
Dedicated contacts

If parents have questions or concerns about their child, the first point of contact is always the class teacher. Parents can make an appointment to meet with the class teacher who is happy to discuss any concerns and answer any questions.

If parents then require additional information or guidance, they can contact the school to make an appointment with the SENCO / Assistant Head teacher for Inclusion if necessary who is Mrs Amy Sivadasan.

Measuring children's progress

Children’s progress is continually monitored by class teachers. His/her progress is reviewed formally every term and recorded onto the schools assessment data system called Tracker.

Children with SEND will have an individual programme, which will contain their short term targets.  These are reviewed at least three times each year.

The progress of children with a statement of SEND/ EHC Plan is formally reviewed at an Annual Review with all adults involved with the child’s education.

Parents are also updated during parents evening. However if parents have any issues or concerns, they can contact the class teacher to discuss their child. If need be the SENCO would also be involved.

Support and training for school staff

Key staff supporting children with complex needs have ongoing training and CPD alongside specialist outreach

teachers. All teachers and learning support staff attend regular staff meetings and training sessions which relate to high quality teaching and learning. 

Accessibility of the school
  • The school has one ground floor level with easy access to both hall and gym.
  • The school has shower facilities and a disabled toilet.
  • There is a ramp access leading into main playground which is suitable for wheel chair users and push chairs.
  • Additional and different support will sometimes take place in areas other than the child’s classroom.  Group rooms such as the 'Nurture room'  are sometimes used for these purposes.  

Their progress and achievement are rigorously tracked. Staff keep rigorous records on SEND pupils and communicate regularly to the inclusion team who suggest interventions/strategies.

Interventions are in place for those children who need extra support-interventions are monitored to ensure children make accelerated progress. As soon as the initial concern is raised, and additional support is put in place a meeting is held with parents to inform them and keep them updated.

If a referral is made for Outreach support, then parent meetings are held to obtain consent and to inform them of the next steps. The impact of outreach agency support is then discussed at regular termly meetings.

To support transition between classes there will always be a transition meeting in the summer term. This will be attended by the current teacher, the new teacher, the current support staff, the new support staff, outreach support and the SENCo.

When moving schools and transition to Secondary School all of the above people would attend as well as key members of staff from the receiving school.

Support and training for parents and carers
  • Parent learning/support groups
  • Coffee mornings with parents
