Special Educational Needs

Many children will at some point find something difficult at school and may need extra help. But for some children, difficulties are prolonged or more significant, causing a barrier to learning. If your child finds learning difficult, you may wonder if they have special educational needs. In the first instance, you can discuss your concerns with your child's class teacher, who may be able to suggest ways to further support your child.

How we provide for pupils with SEN & Disabilities

The school SENCo (Special Educational Needs Co-ordinator) may be involved to help plan support. Support takes many forms depending on the child's needs, but will certainly involve parents to discuss progress and next steps.

A few children may have more severe difficulties and the school may wish to involve other agencies. At all stages, parents are involved. You will be invited to meetings to discuss how we can work together to support your child and to discuss their progress.

Our SENCo is Miss J Halsey, who can be contacted by telephone on 01283 760283
