Special Educational Needs
Children with special educational needs are welcome to our school and are respected as unique and valuable members of the community.
A member of staff and a Governor have responsibility for the area of special educational needs within our school. All children are given the greatest possible access to the National Curriculum that is appropriately differentiated to provide support for children who have learning difficulties. Support from outside agencies is sought to help devise programmes of study, where appropriate. Our aim is to create an environment where children can develop the skills, self-esteem and motivation to become responsible for their own learning and achieve their maximum potential.

Our school SENDCO is Mrs Rebecca Nayler
Any concerns or queries regarding the support we provide to pupils with special educational needs should be raised in the first instance with the classteacher who will then seek advice from the SENCO/HT as appropriate. Any complaint regarding our SEN provision would be made through the regular complaints policy and procedure, see our complaints policy below.
Governor with responsibility for SEND in school: Mr Paul McCann
Children who demonstrate particular skills are identified early in their educational career and, where appropriate, given additional opportunities and challenges to stimulate their development. We ensure, however, that any such assistance is not to the detriment of other children. Our policy for Gifted and Able Pupils can be found below.
