SEND Provision Map

At Golborne and Maxilla we take a child centred and holistic approach to SEND provision . This means that much of our SEND provision is interwoven into the everyday provision, rather than running as separate intervention programs. For this reason we thought it would be more useful to present our SEND provision as seen below:

Environment/equipment based provision

Swiss balls, wedge cushions, weighted lap pads and vests, tangle toys, chewy tubes, fiddle toys, sensory play such as foam, corn flour, dry lentils, sand and water
