Special Needs and Disabilities

It is our policy to support every child in our school, from those experiencing learning difficulties to those who need a more challenging curriculum. We aim to identify special learning needs as early as possible and all staff contribute to this process. The school follows the agreed New Code of Practice for SEN (2014). Children are supported through Individual Education Plans and those with more complex needs may have  an Education Health and Care Plan.  Regular meetings are held to review progress and learning needs. We work closely with various external agencies, which provide advice, resources and expertise. Parents of children with special needs are kept fully informed of progress at all stages.

Our School Information Report gives more details about the support that we provide, and is available by clicking here.

Answers to some of the frequently asked questions about SEND are available by clicking here.

We also keep a record of higher achieving pupils, and track their progress. Some will be identified as being gifted or talented. We will try to provide activities that will encourage these children’s abilities.

The school is accessible to wheelchair users, with ramps to the majority of doorways. The school uses a range of teaching techniques and resources to allow access to the curriculum. In 2015 we were re-accredited for the Inclusive, Dyslexia Friendly Schools Mark. More information about Dyslexia can be found on the British Dyslexia Association website: here
