Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND)
Many children need to have extra support at some time during their school years. This might be for a short period of time or in some cases, maybe necessary on a long term basis.
If we are concerned about a child, either academically, socially or emotionally, we will identify and plan the additional support they need. Parents will be involved in this process right from the beginning. We have very good links with a range of other agencies and specialists and will work together and in partnership to provide the necessary support to enable the child to make progress.
Some children have English as an additional language (EAL) and speak in a different language at home. These children are given support to enable them to access the curriculum and make progress in their understanding and use of English.
Children who are particularly able or gifted are identified as having Additional Educational Needs. This may be in one specific area or in a range of subjects and teaching will be carefully matched to their individual needs.
We are committed to meeting the individual needs of all of our children to ensure that they all make good progress and achieve their potential. Please speak to either the class teacher or Special Educational Needs Coordinator (SENCo) if you have any concerns.
