Special Needs Support

We have an SEN team who holistically develop and monitor children with additional needs/SEND. Well-being and academia are equally as important and we work in partnership with all outside professionals including Specialist Teachers and Paediatricians to provide the best educational experience possible for all children including those with additional needs.

We have an open door policy where each parent can discuss their child with key professionals. We also invite parents/carers to a formal parents evening twice a year and parents can access their child’s learning via a secure online platform.

We have a qualified SENCo and experienced SEN team as well as a Counsellor who work together to meet the needs of the child. We also work closely with Specialist Teachers and other key professionals and employ additional recommended strategies where required.

We use a variety of teaching strategies for all children including those with additional needs. We have a broad, rich curriculum that gives opportunities for a range of teaching styles, including outdoor learning.

We have an SEN policy which we closely follow and we respond to the needs of the child, providing support where necessary and appropriate. We follow recommendations from key professionals and have a robust plan do review cycle.

We regularly monitor the progress and attainment of all children including those with additional needs through a two weekly Pupil Support Team meeting, termly Pupil Progress Meetings and regular professional dialogues. We hold a formal parents evening twice a year and parents receive an annual written report. We encourage a close working partnership between home and school.

We are an inclusive school and will adapt, where possible, to meet the needs of the child.

DDA Compliant

A high percentage of our nursery children will go on to attend our school. We work closely with the Early Years Team to ensure a smooth transition for both child and parent. We also invite other schools to visit if necessary.
