How do we identify and assess children with SEN
Our SENCO oversees all support and progress of any child requiring additional support across the school.The class teacher will oversee, plan and work with each child with SEND in their class to ensure that progress in every area is made.
There may be a Teaching Assistant working with your child, either individually or as part of a group, if this is seen as necessary by the class teacher. The class teacher will meet with parents at least on a termly basis (this could be as part of Parent’s evening) to discuss your child’s needs, support and progress.
Pupils with additional learning needs
The school caters for pupils with a wide range of additional education needs so that they can access all areas of the school curriculum. Where special educational needs are identified, a support package designed to meet individual needs will be put in place.
Gifted and talented pupils
Pupils with particular gifts or talents in any subject area will find opportunities to develop these within and beyond their regular lessons.
Special Educational Provisions
We are an inclusive school and make provision for all children to grow and learn with their peers as far as is practicable. We work with parents and professionals to determine the most appropriate provision for pupils with disabilities. Many children need additional educational provision at some point in their school life. Additional needs are met through assessment and delivery of targeted teaching.
