Children with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities 

We believe that all children are of equal worth and that we must provide, in a happy and caring atmosphere, an education that is responsive to their needs, and one that will help them achieve their full potential. They should make progress so that they can achieve their best, become confident individuals, and make a successful transition into adulthood. All children should have access to a broad and balanced curriculum. Teachers have high expectations, set ambitious targets and identify any potential areas of difficulty.

 

A child has a special educational need or disability if they:

  • Have a significantly greater difficulty in learning than the majority of children of the same age
  • Have a disability which prevents or hinders them from making use of educational facilities

 

We aim to:

  • Promote the early identification of each child’s individual needs
  • Meet all children’s needs, be they social, emotional, academic or physical
  • Provide all children with equality of opportunities so they can engage in all aspects of school life
  • Ensure that all children feel valued as part of our community
  • Seek and take account of the views of each child
  • Involve and consult parents at every stage of the process
