A special educational need can be a number of different things. For example, a child may be having problems with reading, number work or behaviour, which can be helped by putting extra support in at school and by working in partnership with parents. It may also be due to a disability which makes it harder for a child to use the same educational facilities that the school provides for the majority of children. For some children this may be a temporary difficulty, while others may have a long term need for special help.
To identify children with special educational needs in our school, all children’s learning is tracked carefully and any concerns are discussed between the class teacher, parent and SENCO. Once a need is identified, strategies are implemented which are carefully monitored and assessed to ensure they impact on the child’s achievement.
If you would like to discuss your SEND requirements in detail please contact the school to arrange an appointment.
