2. What does your education provision aim to achieve for children with SEND?
We have high expectations of our children with SEND and work in partnership with families
to ensure they achieve their very best. We provide appropriate support to include children
with SEND in all aspects of school life, giving them every opportunity to succeed. This
involves a range of interventions to support children experiencing difficulties with maths,
literacy, processing, memory, social skills and emotional or behavioural difficulties.
Additional support is delivered by a dedicated team of experienced SEND Teachers and
Teaching Assistants, and trained volunteers. We also involve outside agencies whenever
appropriate and welcome conversations with parents about their child’s difficulties or the
support they are receiving.

it cover?
We are located in Whitton within the London Borough of Richmond upon Thames. We take
children from across Richmond and other neighbouring local authorities.

8. What future plans does your education provision have for developing its
SEND provision?
Our new Junior SEMH provision opened in September 2014 following appropriate training
for all Junior Staff.
Our team of teachers and Teaching Assistants receive regular training in aspects of SEND
in order to meet the changing needs of children within both schools and to remain up to
date in SEND initiatives.
9. What additional provision is made for children with SEND at Heathfield?
All children are entitled to good quality teaching within the classroom. We recognise that
for some children additional support is necessary to compliment this. We use various
assessments and informal and formal conversations to ascertain which support is best for
each child. This is regularly reviewed to respond to the changing needs of each child.
Support may include:
 Additional phonic interventions for individuals and in small groups
 Additional maths support for individuals and in small groups
 Specialist SEND teaching
 Additional in class support
 Access to our sensory room
 On site nurture groups with access to our food technology areas and gardening spaces

Additional therapy sessions on a small group or one to one basis
