Provision for children with Special Educational Needs/Disabilities
Special Educational Needs Coordinator (SENCo) - Miss J Steward.
Children may need extra support if they are:
a) Having problems, or experiencing difficulty, with their work.
b) Are particularly gifted and need additional challenge.
Support is given in many ways if a child is identified as having Special Educational Needs/Disability. Additional resources may be available from the school or, in more exceptional circumstances, provided by the LA. This support may include individual work programs, small group work and ideas for parents and children to work on at home.
If we are particularly concerned about your child's learning then we will ask you to come into school and discuss their progress and then decide whether or not additional help should be requested. In this case, the initial note of concern is noted by our school's Special Educational Needs Coordinator. The extent of any problem assessed will determine what, if any, extra help can be made available.
If you have any any concerns about your child's progress, please make an appointment to discuss it with either their class teacher, Miss Steward (our Special Education Needs Coordinator) or our Head Teacher.
Our SENCO will liaised at length with our feeder infant school prior to children joining us and children who are on the Special Educational Needs/Disability register will remain, initially at that level of concern when they join us. Extra transitional support will be given to those children with SEN/D where appropriate.
