Special Educational Needs & Disabilities
The school accommodates children of a wide range of ability and, as far as possible, their needs are met by their class teacher who matches the level of work to the ability of the child. However, some children will need extra support with their learning in addition to that provided by the class teacher, as they proceed through the school. We make every effort to identify such children at an early stage, and will consult with you about this at the time. Equally if you are concerned about your child’s progress please discuss this with the class teacher straight away. We recognise the vital importance of parental involvement in the education of their children. Individual programmes can be devised for children so that parent, teacher and child can work together. The school Policy for Special Educational Needs is based on the current guidance in The Code of Practice.
Our policy for Gifted, Able and Talented children provides guidance for identifying those in this category and providing strategies to meet their differing needs most effectively.
Our aim is to ensure that all teaching is appropriately differentiated in order to meet these individual needs
The school has access to a support team, which includes an Educational Psychologist, a Learning Support Teacher, the School Medical Officer and a School Attendance Officer. With parental consent we can seek advice from the appropriate expert if necessary. When a child’s needs are such that they cannot be met in a mainstream school without providing significant additional provision then a statement of need will be issued which will identify the appropriate support needed. The school is equipped and modified to accommodate children with a wide range of disabilities so as to meet the requirements relating to the Disability Discrimination Act 1995.
