Special Education Needs and Disabilities

There are many reasons why children have difficulties with school work. If your child is having difficulties with their learning or if you are concerned (or have questions) about their progress, our staff are always happy to talk with parents about how we can support your child together. The teacher may plan work to meet your child’s needs and additional adult support may be given. Our school assistants are trained to use a wide range of intervention programmes that support children’s learning. Sometimes the school will seek advice from an outside agency such as the Educational Psychologist or Speech Therapist. We also are experienced in supporting parents to help to secure an external assessment of a child’s needs which may result in securing an EHC (Education, Health and Care plan) that sets out a statutory entitlement to enhanced support for your child’s learning in school.
