Victory Primary School Inclusion Centre – Communication and Interaction

What the Inclusion Centre offers
The Inclusion Centre for children with communication and interaction difficulties, including a significant language disorder,  is an integral part of The Victory Primary School.  It caters for up to 23 pupils between the ages of 4 and 11 years whose primary need is the area of communication and interaction.

Details of the school’s SEN Information Report can be found on our website at here

Who is able to attend the Inclusion Centre?
Children placed within the Inclusion Centre will:

•    Have a Statement of Special Education Needs or an Education Health and Care Plan.  In exceptional circumstances a child may be placed at the school whilst a statutory assessment is being completed

•    Be in the age range 4- 11 years, National Curriculum years Reception to Year 6

•    Have a language disorder as their primary special educational need.  Their language difficulty should not be caused by their environment, a hearing loss or an emotional/behavioural problem

•    Have a language disorder affecting expression and/or comprehension of language.  This may include children with semantic/pragmatic disorders and children with severe phonological difficulties

•    Have general non-verbal abilities within the broad average range or higher

•    Have a severity of language disorder which means that access to the national curriculum is difficult without significant specialist support

•    Demonstrate the potential to be included in the mainstream classroom for at least part of the week and access the national curriculum with modification and/or differentiation as appropriate

In addition children placed within the provision may:

•    Show associated difficulties in learning, social functioning, emotional development, self-confidence, self-esteem, motivation and behaviour

How do we make sure we provide a quality education for SEND children?
•    National standards as monitored through Ofsted Inspections which are available on our website

•    Local Authority monitoring of pupil progress
