We track the achievement of every child on a regular basis and do all we can to make sure each child achieves their potential.

However there are several small flights of stairs which are marked with a yellow strip to support Visually Impaired pupils. There are handrails on either side of all stairs. We ensure that equipment used is accessible to children regardless of their needs. There is a disabled toilet and a shower in a separate area.
Children with SEND are fully included in all clubs and activities at Glade. Comprehensive risk assessments are carried out and the necessary support is put into place. If necessary parents/carers of children with SEND are invited on our educational visits. Their views about their children are always considered.
- Transition arrangements
Starting or changing schools
We recognise that transitions can be difficult for a child with SEND and take steps to ensure that any transition is as smooth as possible.
If your child is moving to another school:
We will contact the school SENDCO and ensure he/she knows about any special arrangements or support that need to be made for your child. We will make sure that all records about your child are passed on as soon as possible.
When moving classes in school:
Information will be passed on to the new class teacher in advance. A planning meeting will take place with the new teacher. All IEP’s and information will be shared with the new teacher. If your child would be helped by a book to support their understanding of moving on, they will be involved in the process of making one.
In Year 6:
Where possible your child will visit their new school on several occasions and in some cases staff from the new school will visit your child in this school. They will also attend the Primary Transition Day with their classmates. Meetings will be arranged with the relevant staff to discuss the specific needs of the child.
