SEND & Inclusion

At Epsom Downs Primary School, children are taught to embrace and value difference. This ethos is taken very seriously and incorporated into the curriculum wherever possible. Each year, we take an active role in Anti-Bullying Week where children across the Key Stages take part in workshops and activities that teach them to address diversity in a positive way.

We are committed to the successful inclusion of pupils with Special Educational Needs (SEN) and disabilities.

We offer an inclusive curriculum and programmes to ensure the best possible progress for all children, whatever their needs or abilities.

We aim for every child with SEN to be happy, valued, successful, confident and fully integrated into school life. We believe that diversity is a strength which should be celebrated by all those who are associated with the school.

If your child has inclusion needs of any kind, we would be very happy to discuss them with you.

The Hive

The Hive is a fully inclusive hub, based in our Family Centre, providing education and opportunities for children who are in crisis or who might otherwise need specialist provision as they are unable to access the learning opportunities provided within a mainstream classroom, despite a high level of support.  The small group provision meets the needs of our most vulnerable learners, enabling them to achieve and aspire where they have otherwise been struggling to access the curriculum.

The structure uses a TEACCH approach to focus on the children’s educational progress and attainment each morning, with a focus on a therapeutic approach to address barriers to learning each afternoon. 

The aim of The Hive provision is to successfully reintegrate children into their ainstream classrooms with increased independence, where possible.

The Rookery

The Rookery is a small group learning provision, based in our media suite, to meet the needs of children across Key Stage 2 who are working at a level significantly below their peers and struggling to access the learning in a mainstream classroom.

The learning takes place through a semi formal curriculum and is tailored to meet the needs of each individual child.

The aim of The Rookery provision is to successfully reintegrate children into their mainstream classrooms with increased independence, where possible.
