Pupil Support



Pupil Premium



At school, your child will be able to access a wide range of support in order to help them to achieve their potential. Pupils are taught and guided in a variety of ways which best suit their learning style and ability. Children with Special Education and Disbability Needs (SEND) are highlighted individually and programmes are tailor-made to specifically meet their needs.

How effective is SEND at Heaton Avenue?

OFSTED quote July 2017 -

Leaders’ careful tracking of individual pupils ensures that funding for disadvantaged pupils and those who have special educational needs and/or disabilities is targeted appropriately. Progress for these groups of pupils has quickened as a result.

 Adults sensitively make adjustments to learning activities to support and include all pupils. This is particularly helpful in enabling pupils who are disadvantaged or have special educational needs and/or disabilities to succeed.

An increasing proportion of pupils have social, emotional and mental health issues. Their needs are supported very effectively. For example, the use of support plans and individual pupil risk assessments is successful in helping pupils to manage their emotions. 

Pupils who have special educational needs and/or disabilities usually make good progress. Progress for pupils with more complex needs is not always as rapid in academic subjects. However, in these cases, pupils are often gaining increased confidence and independence in their learning. 

Area to develop -  Attendance has remained below average for disadvantaged pupils and those pupils who have special educational needs and/or disabilities. A range of whole-school approaches are taken by leaders to improve attendance for these pupils. However, they are not having a strong enough impact on improving attendance for these groups.  (Attendance is improving for these groups of pupils and currently no children with an EHCP are Persistent Absentees)
