Children with Special Educational Needs
The school is organised with mixed ability classes but the work is carefully matched to individual children. We also employ teaching assistants to support children either within the classroom or as part of a small group. In this way we ensure that all children have access to the curriculum and achieve success in their learning.
If we think your child has special educational needs we will make arrangements for a modified curriculum in the classroom. The class teacher will discuss with you how we can work together to give your child a boost and ensure they are happy in school. Planned actions will be recorded on a Graduated Action Plan (GAP) and this will be used to identify the level of support your child needs in order to make progress.
Sometimes, when the need is severe, we will call in experts to advise us. Very occasionally a child will need an EHCP – Education and Health Care Plan which is a formal recognition of their difficulties from the Local Authority.
