Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND)
In line with the current SEN Code of Practice we adopt a graduated approach, which recognises that children learn in different ways and have different needs. We work closely with our partners to identify needs before children start nursery or as soon as possible thereafter. At first a child may receive additional support or input. Step by step if the child fails to make adequate progress we may draw on specialist help. Your child may need help for a short period of time or for many years. You as parents will be involved at every stage and you will meet not only the class teacher but also the Special Educational Needs Coordinator, Mrs Allen.
