SEND, Inclusion and Safeguarding

SEND and Inclusion

Inclusion, diversity and equality is at the heart of Goose Green.  Difference is celebrated, respected and appreciated.  Our priority is to ensure that all groups of learners access an enhanced curriculum and achieve success.

Although we are mindful that pupils begin their school journey having had a variety of experiences and achieving developmental milestones at different points, we understand the importance of early identification and intervention.  Alongside using their own knowledge, our staff work closely with professionals to ensure appropriate support and scaffold is implemented at the earliest opportunity to remove barriers to learning and ensuring equity for all.  

Inclusive practice is threaded throughout the teaching and learning at Goose Green.  High quality first teaching strategies benefit all groups of learners.  Effective personalised and targeted provision is delivered to those who require intervention above the general classroom offer.  High expectations of support are achieved through the plan, do, review cycle.  Our pupils all aim for the same outcomes, but may follow a different path to get there. 

Subject leaders incorporate inclusion when monitoring their subjects.  Parent and carer partnerships are valued and crucial when ensuring that the needs of our pupils are met.  Our strategies are a combination of evidence based and innovative approaches, tailored to individual and cohort need.

If you have any concerns or questions regarding your child, please discuss them first with your child’s class teacher.

Child Protection

All staff and Local Committee Members receive regular safeguarding training in order to understand their responsibilities in school. Any concerns are reported to our Child Protection Online Monitoring System (CPOMS). The procedures give clear instructions for school staff to inform Social Care immediately of any allegation of abuse or non-accidental injury. It is the duty of the school to follow these instructions. Parents/carers are informed as soon as possible.

The Designated Safeguarding Leads are Louise Partridge and Cat Shuttleworth and the Deputy Designated Safeguarding Leads are Lauren Brandford,  Melissa Godden, Georgina Harrison, Sharon Olney and Beverley Phillips.

Please visit the Child Exploitation & Online Protection Centre website to report suspected abuse, sexual offenders or grooming.
