Special Educational Needs and Disabilities

Some children may experience difficulty with their learning at some point during their time in school.  This may be a short term or longer lasting difficulty.  This is identified if a child:

  • finds it significantly more difficult to learn than the majority of children of the same age or
  • has a disability which prevents or hinders them from making use of educational facilities of a kind generally provided for children of the same age in schools within the Local Authority.

The designated Special Educational Needs and Disabilities Co-ordinators are: 

  • Miss Gail Palmer 
  • Mrs Stephanie Lock

We are committed to ensuring that every child is offered full access to a broad, balanced and relevant education, including an appropriate curriculum for the Early Years Foundation Stage and the National Curriculum. 

Our commitment to the “unique child” in terms of development, inclusion, safety and well-being moves the identification of need away from the “special” category into the belief of fostering positive outcomes for all our children.

We have highly trained teachers and teaching assistants who can help and support children who are experiencing any difficulties and Mrs Lock, with Miss Palmer coordinates this work across the whole school. If we feel that your child is experiencing particular difficulties we will, of course, talk to you about this so that you are aware of what we are doing to support your child and can help with this at home.

We ensure that we keep up to date in terms of new research which may help us to help children more effectively
