Special Education Needs

The school has three dedicated SENCOs responsible for ensuring all aspects of SEN provision are delivered effectively. The SENCO's liaise with various external bodies to ensure all relevant support for children with Special Educational Needs is used. This includes using a private educational psychology company, which is more organised and efficient then the Local Authority service and caters more effectively for our children. We also have a good working relationship with the Speech and Language service, and with nurses and doctors who have planned programmes to support the children in need of their services. The school has small classes of 25 in KS1 with full time teaching assistant support and between 12 and 22 in KS2, with some teaching assistant support. The children in the lower ability classes are in classes of 12 to 13, which allows the teachers to design individual work programmes for the pupils. This has been ongoing for four years, and has resulted in the majority of children, with some degree of special learning need, leaving the school at national average standards in their SATS exams. The strong behaviour policy of the school has resulted in there being no cases of ADHD in over a decade. Where children have entered the school diagnosed with ADHD this has been rectified.
