Key Information

SEND and Equalities Objectives

At Cherry Orchard we believe that all children are given the opportunity to achieve their full potential. We endeavour to remove the barriers to learning as early as possible in order to fulfill this belief.

Through providing a nurturing environment and targeted support we help develop the whole child so that 'they care, they learn, they succeed'. 

Our inclusive philosophy underpins all that we do and with effective partnerships between children, parents and other essential services, the staff at Cherry Orchard maintain high aspirations for all.

We liaise with a range of other agencies to provide the most specialist advice on offer for your children.

Special Educational Needs and Disability (SEND) Information Report

The SEND Information Report outlines the provision we are able to offer at Cherry Orchard Primary School, in support of our pupils with SEND, to ensure that every pupil is able to access learning that ensures outstanding progress, the development of life skills and positive emotional well-being for future lives. It also outlines the agencies that we work with to ensure we have access to a range of specialist professionals to deliver the most effective provision for our pupils. Provision may change and develop over time as we respond to the pupils we have in our school.

Equalities Objectives

The Equality Act 2010 requires us to publish specific and measurable equality objectives every 4 years. Our equality objectives are based on our analysis of data and other information. Our equality objectives focus on those areas where we have agreed to take action to improve equality and tackle disadvantages. We will regularly review the progress we are making to meet our equality objectives.

Our current Equality Objectives 2021-2025 are:

Objective 1: Gender To diminish the difference in attainment and progress between boys’ and girls’ writing in each year group.

Objective 2: Disability To narrow the gap in attendance between SEND Support and non-SEND pupils by fostering good relationships with parents and carers and seeking to understand the barriers to good attendance.

Objective 3: Disadvantaged To improve outcomes in reading, writing and maths for disadvantaged pupils focusing on EYFS and KS1.
