Special Education Needs Survey


SEN Statement

At Dodmire Juniors all staff believe that every child is special. We have a team of five full time support assistants with a part time team leader, offering a high level of support to those who need it at any given time. Most of our support staff and teachers have worked with children who have Autistic spectrum disorders, ADHD, language difficulties, behavioural difficulties, children with specific physical and medical needs and those with general learning difficulties. We feel it is important to have close links with parents and the appropriate professional bodies and the wider community to aide the child's progress.
All children are welcomed at Dodmire regardless of ethnicity, religion, ability, physical needs or background. The strengths of each child are promoted and celebrated whilst their weaknesses are well supported.

Understanding the road risks in your local area

As many of us do, AXA Insurance and Road Safety Analysis believe that one child casualty on Britain’s roads is too much.

The data is presented by local area in order to aid the understanding of risk – it’s not just about killed or seriously injured, but about any incident reported to the police. Although road safety issues may arise due to a myriad of different reasons including proximity to busy roads and local speed limits, schools play a pivotal role in mitigating these risks by investing time in road safety education programmes.
