Our special needs provision is guided by the 'Special Educational Needs Code of Practice 0-25 years' and is embedded in our Special Needs policy.
At some time in their school career, a number of children will have special educational needs of some kind. Some children receive support and help to enable them to overcome a specific short-term difficulty, whilst others require such support throughout their time in school.
There are varying levels of support, all of which involve the identification of specific learning objectives.
The school has a trained SEND Coordinator who is responsible for implementing the special needs programme. Parents are fully involved in this process, and will be invited into school to discuss progress towards the set objectives.
We are able to call on a number of outside support services such as educational psychologists and language therapists who provide advice and support. We also have access to teachers who are specialists in dealing with challenging behaviour.
Currently, the school SENDCo is Tania Sutton.
