The best me that I can be!

SEN

SPECIAL EDUCATION NEEDS

 

A child encountering difficulties will be helped initially within the resources of the classroom.  This may involve:

 

  • Using different teaching approaches or materials
  • Creating more individual time for the child
  • Changing the classroom organisation
  • Informal discussion with parents

 

For many children this will be sufficient to overcome their difficulties.  Where there continues to be a cause for concern the class teacher will seek support from the school’s Special Educational Needs Co-ordinator (SENCo).  The SENCo is also able to seek advice from support services which include:

 

  • Specialist Inclusion Support Service (SISS)
  • The County Psychological Service (EP)
  • Speech and Language Therapy (SALT)
  • Community Paediatrician
  • Occupational therapy

 

This is done in consultation with the child’s parents. 

 

DISABLED ACCESS

Access to school is via the main entrance and adaptations are made to classroom doorways when needed.  There is a toilet for disabled users.

 

ABLE, GIFTED AND TALENTED CHILDREN

Some children have a special need because they are more able in all or a particular area of the curriculum.  There are a range of strategies, which the school uses to help meet these particular children’s special needs, including discussing provision with parents.  In addition, able children from the local infant schools regularly meet to take part in enrichment activities.
