We moved to the area mid-year and were really impressed with how the school team supported our two children to fit in.

The school’s warm and nurturing atmosphere enables each child to develop confidence in their own individual voice/identity.

The school recognises and fully supports the statutory rights of all pupils to equal opportunities and that each child has a variety of differing needs.

We believe that all children should receive a broad and balanced curriculum, relevant to the individual needs, with access to all areas of the curriculum. Most needs can be dealt with by the class teacher, however, where a teacher or parent becomes concerned it may be necessary to initiate a special programme of support and work for that child. This is only implemented after consultation with the Special Educational Needs Co-ordinator (SENCO) and focuses on specific targets broken into small steps which the children can achieve. The stages of help are easily explained and are monitored regularly. We wish to build a partnership between parent, teacher and child that benefits the child’s educational progress and attainment.

Work in all aspects of the curriculum can be differentiated to suit the needs and ability of the children. Differentiation can take many forms and arrangements are made to cater for those children with specific learning difficulties, or those who are more able and need challenges. Targets are set for all children to encourage them to extend themselves.

Any parents who are concerned about their child’s progress should make an appointment to speak to the class teacher and / or the SENCO. As well as the SENCO there is a Governor with designated responsibility for special educational needs. A copy of the Special Needs Policy is available on the ‘documents and Policies’ section of the website or from the school office.
