Meeting the needs of all learners (Special Educational Needs)
Special Educational Needs
We believe that children with special educational needs should have equal access to a broad, balanced, inclusive and relevant curriculum which is differentiated to meet their individual needs. For the majority of children support will be provided through differentiated work, sometimes with additional help from Learning Support Assistants (Special Needs Support), or outside agencies such as the Educational Psychologist. Normally support will be provided within the classroom, although sometimes children may be withdrawn to work in a small group or on an individual programme. Children in need of extra support are placed on our Special Needs Register in order for us to monitor their progress carefully and to ensure the right level of support is being provided. Parents, pupils and staff work together to review progress through the creation and implementation of an Learning Plan.
Whilst many factors may contribute to the range of difficulties experienced by some children, we believe that much can be done to overcome them by parents, teachers and support staff, outside agencies and pupils working together.

More able children
The school is also committed to meeting the needs of able pupils and those who demonstrate a particular talent. This is achieved through planning opportunities within and beyond the curriculum which challenge children’s thinking and enable them to extend their learning and skills. In the last year this has included participating in local and national competitions as well as helping lead the learning of other children in the school by taking the role of ‘curriculum experts’ during whole school activities.
