We believe that all the children are entitled to experience the full curriculum and our Special Needs policy reiterates this. Many children have educational needs, which can be addressed through a normal differentiated curriculum within the classroom.
Children who are identified as having Special Educational Needs are given Individual Education Plans identifying small specific targets. These are reviewed twice yearly (termly for children under 5 years old) and discussed with the child and his/her parents. If the child is making little or no progress, advice is sought from outside agencies, i.e, Educational Psychologist. Children who have made good progress have their needs addressed through normal classroom differentiation.
Mrs V Berry is the named co-ordinator for the Special Needs. Mr M Fitzpatrick is the named governor. Children with special needs include pupils with learning, emotional, medical and behavioural difficulties. As a school, every attempt is made to provide a differentiated curriculum for all children, ranging from the most able, in liaison with parents and LEA Support Services.
