Selborne Primary School is a mainstream Primary School with an Additional Resource Provision (ARP. The ARP aims to support the development of children (aged 4 = 11) with an Educational Health Care Plan who meet the criteria for entry.
We want everyone at Selborne School to do the absolute best for all our children, where:
- learning is fun
- everyone is encouraged to reach their potential
- we respect and treat each other fairly
- we feel valued as part of the community
Selbore Primary aims to provide a broad, balanced and differentiated curriculum for all children. The National Curriculum is our starting point for planning that meets the specific needs of individuals and groups of children. When planning, teachers set suitable learning challenges and respond to children's diverse learning needs.
All children are valued equally, regardless of their abilities, aptitudes, interests and behaviour. We maintain high aspirations for all children to achieve their full potential both academically and socially.
Quality First Teaching is paramount to ensure we fulfil this aim for our children.
Teachers take account of these requirements and make provision, where necessary, to support individuals or groups of children and thus enable them to participate effectively in the curriculum and in assessment activities.
For some children, however, it is necessary to provide additional support and/or resources to enable them to achieve their targets in school.
At Selbome Primary we support children with a range of additional needs, including speech and language, learning needs, hearing impairment, visual impairment, physical disabilities and children on the Autistic Spectrum.
Four Broad Areas of SEND
We identify needs within 4 broad areas of SEND.
Cognition & Learning (including developmental delay, dyslexia and other specific learning difficulties)
Communication & Interaction (including speech, language, social skills and autism)
Social, Emotional & Mental Health (including autism and anxiety)
Sensory & Physical (including visual/hearing impairment, sensory processing and motor difficulties)
Your child may have difficulties in one or more of these areas.

There may be times when we need to refer to external professionals to gain extra support for your child. Here are some of the professionals we may use:
Speech & Language Therapy (SALT)
Occupational Therapy (OT)
Child Development Team (CDT)
Sensory Impairment Service (SENS)
