Enhanced Learning Provision

OFSTED January 2023

Leaders have put in place a well-designed, and ambitious curriculum. They have carefully considered how to adapt learning while keeping all pupils, including those with special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEND), on the ‘same journey’. Pupils in the enhanced learning provision benefit from targeted support that helps them to access the broad curriculum.

Croydon special schools and enhanced learning provisions offer appropriate placements for children and young people with the most significant needs, who require a curriculum which is wrapped around them so that they can engage in learning.  

Special School and ELPs form part of Croydon’s continuum of provision and services which The Council makes for children and young people with SEND. They offer a variety of provision through their different designations and distinctive areas of expertise.

At South Norwood Primary School we have an MLD ELP for children with Mild Learning Difficulties.

We have two places in each year group, on our admissions criteria, for entry into the ELP. 

The ELP curriculum is topic based and is a blend of EYFS/KS1 learning, social communication skills, listening, speaking and attention. There is also a focus on sensory needs, behaviour and play. The children all have individual packages of support according to their own particular needs. Our staff make their assessments and tailor their learning accordingly.
