We have a Special Educational Needs Co-ordinator who co ordinates the educational provision for children who have areas of need, (either educationally, socially, physically or emotionally), that may impact on their ability to learn effectively. The SENco along with the Deputy Head will ensure that Teacher or Learning Assistant help is directed appropriately.
The SENco maintains, with the staff, a Register identifying which children across the school need extra support. She also liaises with other professionals, speech therapists, educational psychologists, health visitors and social workers. The school has a Special Educational Needs and Disabilities Policy and its aims are the early identification, assessment and appropriate action for children with special educational needs, together with regular reviews. Parents and children are encouraged to participate in that action. Provision is to be made via modification and differentiation of classwork as required.
