Catering for Special Educational Needs
During their school life, many children will experience difficulty in one area or another. This special need could be academic, emotional, behavioural or physical or indeed a combination of these and may very well challenge the child’s development or learning. Some special educational needs are of a complex, long term nature and as such will always be with the child. Others manifest themselves for a shorter term and are less complex.
Provision mapping is used across school in order to ensure specific interventions are closely monitored and inextricably linked to assessments. Provision is closely monitored and altered on a termly basis to ensure that it is appropriate to the child's needs and having an impact on their learning. Structured conversations (a joined up conversation with parents and the teacher) are held for identified pupils.
There are many changes that have occurred in the last academic year (2015-2016) and the new SEN Code of Practice has been in place since September 2016. The policies and procedures are accessible through the links below.
Ultimately, as a staff we endeavour to do the best that we can for your child in this ever changing educational climate. Every child is important within our school family - see what they have to say...
