We believe that all children should thrive with the right support and opportunities. Some children find that they have particular physical, sensory, emotional, behavioural, or general learning difficulties, which can inhibit their ability to thrive without some extra support. These difficulties are termed Special Educational Needs (SEN). If a parent is concerned that their child has SEN, they should discuss this with their child’s class teacher who will then seek support and guidance from the Lead Special Needs Co-ordinator (SENCO), Mrs Amy Kingscote..
Support is dynamic and provided in various ways according to the level of assistance required, with outside agencies being used as necessary. Children with special educational needs may be assisted in the classroom, or given specialist help in small groups working with teachers or teaching assistants. They may be assisted by technology or with outside expertise. We work hard alongside families to help all children reach their full potential.
