Special Education Needs

The Special Needs Team (SENCO, SEN support teacher, SEN support assistants and headteacher) has oversight of all pupils in the shcool. Teachers and support staff work closely with parents to identify any pupil with any special education need, relating to learning or medical needs. Pupils are supported in class and often withdrawn for specific teaching and identified learning objectives. The SEN Team works closely with the LEA's Pupil Support Service staff who offer a wide variety of specialist advice and support. Parents are involved in their child's education throughout the year and frequent opportunities are provided for staff and parents to meet together informally or on a more formal review basis.
