All the children are entitled to receive an education that will develop them to their full potential. For some, this requires the provision of additional support in school.
Children with learning difficulties are supported in line with the requirements of the National Code of Practice for Special Educational Needs. Concerns expressed by parents or staff are addressed and appropriate action taken.
Needs may be met using staff and resources available in school or, if needs demand, the school works closely with the full range of outside agencies. These agencies may include the Inclusion and Disability Support Service, Social Services and the local Children's Centre.
We closely monitor the progress and attainment of our children with Special Educational Needs to ensure that they achieve their full potential. In some cases, a member of staff works with small groups or individual children to provide intensive support. Where appropriate, an Individual Education Plan is drawn up stating the targets and approaches to be adopted for each child. Progress against these planned targets is reviewed regularly.
Throughout this process, where appropriate, the child's views are sought, parents are informed, consulted and involved as their input is valued. Parents are invited to discuss their child's progress and any matters of concern to them. Such discussion may take place formally or informally depending on the level of need.
