Special Educational Needs and Disabilities


Children have a wide range of abilities and characteristics.  These needs may include exceptional ability, learning difficulties or behavioural problems.  It is absolutely vital that parents inform teachers as soon as possible if their child has any special needs or involvement with outside agencies so that we can support them in the best way.  As Teachers we aim to identify, as soon as possible, any child who may have such needs and to ensure that parents are able to play their part in supporting their child’s education.

Class Teachers give individual help to a child who displays difficulties and they are referred to our Special Educational Needs Subject Co-ordinator within the school.  Children with such needs will have the opportunity to work within a small group, with our SEN teacher and other members of staff who provide support e.g. the Nursery Nurse/Senior Classroom Assistant who provide support for children with communication difficulties.  If we think we are unable to meet your child’s educational needs we will refer him/her to outside agencies. 

You will be involved in the process of determining how best your child can be assisted to reach their full potential.
