Special Educational Needs (S.E.N)


Children come to us with different needs and every child is an individual, with differing abilities. We are careful to match the work to each child’s capabilities; always seeking to help them reach their full potential in every aspect. We look out for early signs of difficulties of any kind which might impede their progress. We are also aware that some more able children have their own particular needs.

We are an inclusive school and encourage all pupils to achieve their potential through focussed support and targeted intervention programmes.

From time to time some children require additional support for a set period of time to help meet their needs or improve their learning. The decision to do this is made by the school and is based on a variety of factors including academic progress, and/or assessments carried out by teaching staff or other professionals. It may also be based on ensuring children have a smooth transition into school or require support when going through significant change either at home or school. Parents/carers will be informed when this happens.

Some children will require support for a longer period of time to ensure they can access the curriculum effectively and be included fully in classroom learning and school events. Support will be planned by school staff and where appropriate by external professionals. Parents/carers will be kept informed about this support.

Our SEND Local Offer describes the range of provision and support available to support identified children as and when appropriate. This Offer is subject to change depending on budgetary constraints and policy review.
