Additional Educational Needs
governors have developed a special needs policy according to the special needs "Code of Practice" whcih allows for effective identification and support of children with special needs (with or without legal statements of special needs). This ensures that children with special educational needs (SEN) recieve the variety of learning opportunities which are offered to all children including the maximum possible access to the National Curriculum working alongside their peer group in maistream school.
The specail needs provision in school is provided by the class teacher, teaching assistant support and a peripatetic teacher for specific learnign dificulties; in addition four part language support teachers/assistants are working with children with English as an additional language, and the school has support from a special needs advisory teacher and a school psychologist. The smooth running of this provision is overseen by the school's designated additional needs coordinator, Mrs Webb .
