Inclusion at Redfield Edge Primary School
SENCO / Pupil Premioum Leader: Lisa Robinson
Deputy Head Teacher / SLT
“At Redfield Edge Primary school we ensure that all children; including those identified as having a special educational need have a common entitlement to an accessible, broad and balanced academic and social curriculum and are fully included in all aspects of school life.
We believe that every teacher is a teacher of every child including those with SEN.
Redfield Edge Primary School is committed to providing a high quality education for all the children in our school. We have high expectations of all children and we expect all children to make good progress, regardless of their individual starting points.
The LA Local Offer
The Children and Families Bill became law in June 2014. From this date, Local Authorities and schools are required to publish and keep under review information about services they expect to be available for the children and young people with Special Educational Needs (SEN) aged 0-25. This is the ‘Local Offer’.
The intention of the Local Offer is to improve choice and transparency for families. It will also be an important resource for parents in understanding the range of services and provision in the local area. The South Gloucestershire local offer can be found on the website:

Redfield Edge Primary school SEN information report
The SEN Information report utilizes the LA Local Offer to meet the needs of SEN pupils as determined by school policy, and the provision that the school is able to meet.
This document provides answers to a variety of questions parents have asked regarding what support our school can provide for a range of individual needs.
If you have a question that is not answered in our ‘SEN Information Report’, or require further information, please contact our special needs co-ordinator (SENCo) Mrs Lisa Robinson at the school.

The Government believes that the Pupil Premium, which is additional to main school funding, is the best way to address the current underlying inequalities between children eligible for free school meals (FSM) and their wealthier peers by ensuring that funding to tackle disadvantage reaches the pupils who need it most.
In most cases the Pupil Premium is allocated to schools and is clearly identifiable. It is for schools to decide how the Pupil Premium, allocated to schools per FSM pupil, is spent, since they are best placed to assess what additional provision should be made for the individual pupils within their responsibility.
Schools are free to spend the Pupil Premium as they see fit. However they will be held accountable for how they have used the additional funding to support pupils from low-income families. New measures will be included in the performance tables that will capture the achievement of those deprived pupils covered by the Pupil Premium.
From September 2012, schools are also required to publish online information about how they have used the Premium. This will ensure that parents and others are made fully aware of the attainment of pupils covered by the Premium. Schools will be provided with information about strategies and interventions which can improve the progress and attainment of pupils from poorer backgrounds.
The following documents show the impact that Pupil Premium has had at Redfield Edge Primary School.
