Meeting Children's Needs - Our Local Offer
We recognise that some children will need extra support at some time during their school career. We administer a diagnostic standardised reading, maths and english test each year to screen for individual needs and monitor the reading progress of each child. We aim to identify as early as possible a child’s particular needs, and to provide an appropriate education plan delivered in a supportive and caring manner. Some children may be withdrawn individually or in small groups but wherever possible support will be given within your child's classroom and will be provided by your class teacher and/or a member of our Learning Support Team.
Developing Key Skills
Parents/carers are involved from the outset and you will be kept informed of your child's progress through regular meetings with staff. Where necessary we liaise with medical and social agencies and work closely with our attached Educational Psychologist and other LA experts providing support and advice. We have a nominated governor for special needs who meets regularly with school staff. You are welcome to inspect our Individual Learning Needs Policy which is available in school. A register is kept of those children who are exceptionally able or talented and there are various clubs and activities available to provide appropriate challenges.
In line with the new SEND reforms in 2014 we have produced our SEN Information Report which gives you a lot more information and answers many of the questions you may have. Please click here to download a PDF.
