Some of our children have particular learning and assessment requirements that necessitate particular action by the school. These requirements are likely to arise as a consequence of a child having special educational needs. Teachers take account of these requirements and make provision, where necessary, to support individuals or groups of children and thus enable them to participate effectively in curriculum and assessment activities.
Such children may need additional or different provision from that given to other children of the same age. Each class has a teaching assistant available to them to support the learning and we have a dedicated, hard working team of caring teaching assistants. These assistants may work with a small group or individuals according to their need. If needed, we can call upon some expert services to support our work in school. These services include Behaviour Support, Educational Psychologists and Speech Therapy.
Each school has a dedicated Special Needs Co-ordinator who may be contacted through the School Office.
As part of the 'Children's and Families Act 2014' every provider for additional needs is required to give a summary of what it can offer to help support and care for pupils that may require additional support in school. This is known as the 'SEND Information Report'.
