About 'our offer'
We pride ourselves on the range of provision we offer, including our well developed curriculum, therapies and wellbeing support. All of which is broken down into:
Universal Provision ... what all pupils receive at The Walnuts School
Targeted Provision ... identified interventions for individuals or groups
Specialist Provision ... work with a specialist practitioner
Education, Health & Care Plans are key to the personalisation of the education for our young people.
Managing our provision
Provision Meetings are chaired by the Head of School each term. The agenda includes:
Current intervention outcomes
Year 7 catch up (Middle only)
Referrals for additional support interventions and strategies
Information used includes:
Needs identified in Education Health and Care Plans (EHCPs);
Pupil progress provided by Department Leaders;
Attendance and Behaviour provided by Head of School;
Senior staff with pupil specific information from team meetings and discussions with staff;
Therapist, with specifics from the team.
Provision is recorded, monitored and reviewed using 'Provision Tracker'.
Provision is reviewed and analysed at the end of each academic year by the Senior Team and scrutinised by the Governing Body. Information used to triangulate the effectiveness of provision include:
Annual outcomes reports including pupil progress and achievement data
Annual pastoral report including attendance data
Stakeholder Report including pupil, parents and staff surveys
