Special educational needs and disability

If your child has special educational needs:

  • We aim to meet their needs so that they are given full and equal access to a broad and balanced curriculum.

  • We identify and assess children with SEN as early as possible.

  • We ensure that all procedures for identifying children with SEN are known by everyone.

  • We continually monitor the progress of all pupils to identify needs as they arise and to provide support as early as possible.

  • We maintain regular contact with parents at all stages of support and work in partnership with them to meet the targets set for their child.
