Support for Special Educational Needs

Miss Bambridge is responsible for the co-ordination of Special Educational Needs throughout the school. It is her job to ensure that, as a school, we are following the Code of Practice as well as ensuring all practice in school is in line with our Special Educational Needs Policy.

Miss Bambridge also liaises regularly with staff to ensure that children are given the most appropriate support/resources for their individual needs. A large part of this role is to work closely with external agencies to gain specialist advice and support for individual children. She also ensures that any requests for information on individual children are passed onto the relevant agencies and that parents are kept fully informed of this.

The support of pupils with SEND normally takes place within the classroom and intervention groups.   We have a team of experienced Teaching and Learning Assistants who provide invaluable support for all our children.  Where a possible difficulty has been identified and the need for additional support has been discussed with parents, assessed, undertaken and reviewed; it may then be necessary to request external agency assessment and support.  

Pupils with Disabilities

The school admits pupils identified as having SEND subject to the admission arrangements. Governors are mindful to monitor and improve our facilities as necessary to ensure equal access and full participation for all pupils.
