In our school, we have an absolute commitment to inclusion and the belief that all children have the right to access to the school curriculum whatever their needs and abilities. We are proud of our outstanding provision for our physically disabled pupils and pupils with special educational needs.

Our ongoing assessment procedures help us to identify children’s special educational needs. Often these needs are short term which can be addressed quickly or they may be something that needs longer term support. Additional support may be provided by class teachers, teaching assistants or support teachers. Where necessary outside specialists such as educational psychologists or speech and language therapists will be involved. Of course we discuss any such needs with parents as soon as we become aware of them so that we can work together to give your child the help they need.
