Teachers TV: Primary Special Needs: Differentiation
In ‘Primary Special Needs’, see practical steps taken by Kingston Park Primary School, Newcastle, to ensure that special needs pupils are included and performing their best.
In their pursuit of inclusion, staff take great care over their vocabulary, avoiding terms like 'unit' or 'special needs rooms'. Attention is paid to pupil grouping and pairing, with SEN pupils matched with other pupils to their mutual benefit. The school has also pioneered a smart system of planning, involving splitting pupils into three bands, with an extra column for pupils with special needs.
