Special Educational Needs

If your child does not make appropriate progress we will want to find out why. It may be that short term extra support is required following a period of illness. Longer term help may be required if your child has learning difficulties or special educational needs.


By closely monitoring progress, especially in basic literacy and numeracy, we hope to identify children having difficulties as soon as possible. A range of provision is made for children who may have learning and/or physical difficulties.


The school's Special Needs policy provides further details and is available upon request. The class teacher will cater for the individual needs of each child, supported by the school's Special Educational Needs Coordinator (SENCO), relevant outside agencies and classroom assistants where made available by EA.


Additional teaching may be provided within the school and we have a number of successful intervention programmes in operation, catering for a range of needs. Whatever arrangements are proposed, you will be fully consulted. Your support and encouragement will be a key element in helping your child make appropriate progress.
