- Time to write and revisit writing, valuing the process and craft of writing.
It is important that the expectations for children with SEND are as high as they are for all, around what they can achieve. If children have a special educational need where adapted teaching is needed the English coordinator will work with teachers to enable them to deliver lessons that are inclusive for all. These adaptations may include having to build in pre learning or over learning of a particular skill, ensuring that children have appropriate resources and space to work.
