ATTENDANCE GUIDANCE FOR PUPILS EXHIBITING SYMPTOMS OF COVID


In line with the DFE guidance, May 2022, pupils with the key symptoms of COVID-19, a high temperature or feeling unwell, should not attend school..

Children who are unwell and have a high temperature should stay at home and avoid contact with other people. They can return to school when they no longer have a high temperature and they are well enough to attend. Pupils with a positive Covid-19 test should try to stay at home and avoid contact with other people for 3 days.


Thank you for your co-operation.
Mr Botes

SEND

Broughton High School is a non-selective secondary school.

We believe that all children should be valued as individuals. We have an inclusive ethos with high expectations and targets, a broad and balanced curriculum differentiated to meet individual needs and systems for early identification of barriers to learning and participation. We believe that educational inclusion is about equal opportunities for all learners whatever their age, gender, ethnicity, impairment, attainment and background.

Broughton High School’s curriculum statement outlines the intent, implementation and impact of the curriculum for all children.

“Our aim is to provide an education and curriculum which achieves outstanding outcomes and opportunities for all”.

Achievement with care is our vision for all our pupils. We aim to ensure that:

• Pupils with learning difficulties are able to access their entitlement to a broad, balanced and relevant curriculum as part of the whole school community.

• Pupils with SEND are educated, wherever possible, in an inclusive environment alongside their peers to enable each pupil to reach his or her full potential.


• We match levels of additional support for learning to the wide variety of individual learning difficulties, while enhancing self-esteem.


• We identify and assess pupils with SEND as early and as thoroughly as possible using the revised Code of Practice (2014).


• Parents/carers and pupils are fully involved in the identification and assessment of SEND, and that we strive for close co-operation between all agencies concerned, using a multi-disciplinary approach.


• We endeavour to meet the needs of all pupils with SEND by offering appropriate and flexible forms of educational provision, by the most efficient use of all available resources.


• We maintain up to date knowledge of current SEND good practice and methodology in order to offer support and training in these areas to all staff in the school.
