Welcome to Chesterton Primary School SEND information page
Our motto ‘learning together, growing together, succeeding together’ is central to our fully inclusive vision of a high-quality education for ALL children regardless of their different starting points and any Special Educational Needs and/or Disabilities that they may have. Our ‘Quality First Teaching’ ensures that the learning needs of all children are met through different and personalised learning experiences that may include support and/or challenge through the use of different resources, activities, adult support, or outcomes.
Where children may require support in addition to that provided by the class teacher, they will be assessed to establish the best course of action to secure success. This may involve the intervention of a ‘Learning Supervisor’ and the provision of a personalised programme, or the expertise of a specialist such as the SEND Services Advisor, Educational Psychologist, etc.
Whatever course of action is taken, this will be carried out after consultations with the child/ren and their parents/carers.
Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is a condition that includes symptoms such as inattentiveness, hyperactivity and impulsiveness. Symptoms of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder include a short attention span, constantly fidgeting and acting without thinking. Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder can often be treated with medicines and talking therapies. It's not clear what causes attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, but it tends to run in families. Sometimes things can go unnoticed because the symptoms may be less obvious.

At Chesterton Primary we aim to support all children to enable them to achieve their full potential as we guide them through their learning journey. Quality first teaching is vital; however, for some children there are occasions when further additional support may be needed to help them achieve their learning goals. We have high expectations of all out children and do whatever we can to support the children to achieve their goals.
