Sandringham Primary School is a mainstream school which strives to provide an inclusive environment for all of our children. As a mainstream school the children follow the national curriculum and differentiation takes place accordingly.
As stipulated by the Children and Families Act 2014, Local Authorities are required to publish a ‘Local Offer’ which sets out support that is available for children and young people with SEN in the local area.
Newham’s Local Offer is available on the Newham Website, this informs parents on how to access services in their area and what to expect from these services.
Alongside this, schools are required to publish information about their arrangements for identifying, assessing and making provision for pupils with SEN. This document has been written in conjunction with parents, carers and children and is regularly reviewed.

Sandringham follows the Local Authority policy for inclusive education within our early years settings by working with parents, outside professions such as health visitors, LCIS, BSS and CNDS to meet the needs of all children. In the early years this usually means providing a differentiated curriculum which may include:

As of September 2018, Sandringham formed it’s Resourced Provision for ASD. Placement for the resource provision are allocated to the school by LA Newham SEN section. Placements are determined by a multi-disciplinary advisory panel for all relevant pupils joining Reception classes, whose needs are not sufficiently being met through a mainstream provision. The Local Authority also consults with the school to discuss additional placements across other year groups. These are determined by pupil needs, Educational Health Care Plans (EHCP) and availability of class places. Any application received by the school for a child with an EHCP, seeking a place in Sandringham, will be referred directly to the Head Teacher. The decision regarding a placement will be in line with legislation and that the placement is an efficient use of the Local Authority's resources.Our Resourced Provision has taken a phased approach and will work towards attaining full capacity to ensure its success for our learning community.
At Sandringham, we follow the SCERTS approach. The SCERTS Model is a research-based educational approach and multidisciplinary framework that directly addresses the core challenges faced by children and persons with ASD and related disabilities, and their families. SCERTS focuses on building competence in Social Communication, Emotional Regulation and Transactional Support as the highest priorities that must be addressed in any program, and is applicable for individuals with a wide range of abilities and ages across home, school and community settings.
