Monega Primary School

How does Monega adapt the curriculum and the learning environment for children with special educational needs?



  • All teachers are provided with information on the needs of individual pupils so that they can plan differentiated learning within our curriculum to ensure that all pupils are able to make progress and that the teaching is matched to meet the needs of every child.


  • Regular pupil progress meetings are held with class teachers and a member of the SLT to help us monitor the attainment of all pupils and reflect on the next steps for each pupil.


  • We make reasonable adjustments within the school setting to meet the needs of pupils in line with the Equality Act 2010. If, for example, a child has Speech. Language and Communication Needs teachers will use simplified language, non-verbal cues such as visual prompts. If a child has ASD (Autistic Spectrum Disorder) then teachers will use choice boards, reduced school days, simplified language and visual prompts to enable the child to access the learning.


  • The main school and the nursery have disabled changing and toilet facilities on site. The ground floor is fully accessible, but the second and top floor (including mezzanine levels) are not accessible to wheelchair users. Parents are invited to visit the school to see the facilities in order to enable them to make the decision about how suitable the school would be for their child’s needs. Where appropriate, changes are also made to the curriculum so that pupils have access to mainstream education.


  • The school has access to various language interpreters for when needed e.g. translation for parents evenings, although prior arrangement is necessary.


  • The school liaises with the relevant outside agencies to secure the necessary resources for different physical conditions or special educational needs.
