Special Education Needs
All children may at some time have special needs, including able pupils. Whenever possible these needs are catered for by the child's class teacher, with support from the Special Needs support staff, led by the Inclusion Manager.
If teachers become concerned about the progress being made by your child, they will discuss this with you and draw up an Individual Education Plan to help address your child’s needs. Regular reviews help everybody to stay informed about progress and staff are on hand to discuss any concerns.
It can be essential that specialists, such as Educational Psychologists and Learning Support Services, are brought in to help to identify exactly what the nature of a child’s difficulty is. This helps teachers to adapt methods or resources to match children’s needs.
