Special Educational Needs
The school aims to give all children equal opportunities to access the curriculum and other school activities. Where a child may be experiencing difficulties in learning or in participating fully within the class room setting, the class teacher will discuss with the Inclusion Manager appropriate differentiated learning and intervention. The child’s name will be put on the school’s provision map. Parents are consulted and ways of supporting at home discussed. Where special educational needs are identified, an Individual Education Plan (IEP) will set out the nature of the difficulties and stepstaken to address these. The IEP will be reviewed two or three times a year with parents. If appropriate, a teaching assistant or teacher may occasionally withdraw the child from the class for specific teaching individually or as part of a small group.
Following consultation with parents, it may be necessary to seek the advice of professional support services to meet the individual needs of some children.
Please contact the Inclusion Manager for Special Educational Needs, Miss L Turner, to discuss issues associated with special educational needs.
The Parent Partnership Service, provided by the LEA, aims to help parents whose children have special educational needs. They provide information, advice, support and guidance to enable parents to make informed decisions about their child’s education.

Information leaflets are available from our Inclusion Manager for the school’s policy for Able, Gifted and Talented Pupils.
