It is the aim of the school to provide the appropriate support to help all children.
We believe in early identification so that a need can be addressed appropriately. Many children only need short term help. We assess children and learning programmes are designed to suit the need. Basic skills are reinforced and consolidated. Long term help is also provided for those who have significant or ongoing needs.
As well as Class Teachers we have a SENCO (Special Educational Needs Co-ordinator), Teaching Assistants and Learning Support Assistants. We can also seek advice from outside specialists.
