At our school we believe in providing pupils with a broad and balanced curriculum that meets the needs of all learners. In order to achieve this many steps are taken to support our pupils through their learning journey. Quality teaching is vital; however for some children there are occasions when further additional support may be needed to help them achieve their targets. Our School is an inclusive school, with the needs of pupils' with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities being met in a mainstream setting wherever possible.
The four broad ‘areas of need’ are defined as:
Communication and Interaction, Cognition and Learning, Social, Emotional and Mental Health Difficulties, and Sensory and Physical Needs.
If your child has an EHCP and wishes to attend our school, we will follow the Staffordshire County Council guidance for SEND admissions. If you would like further information please visit the Staffordshire website on https://www.staffordshirecares.info/send-reforms/Home.aspx.
Our school SENDCo's (special Educational Needs Co-ordinators) are Mrs Harris at the Infant site and Mrs Clarke at the Junior site with Mrs Brookes as Assistant SENDCo between both sites. They have dedicated time each week to support children and families. If you would like to see anyone an appointment can be made through the school office.
From the 1st September 2014, under Section 65 (3) (a) of the Special Educational Needs (Information) Regulations, all schools are required to publish an SEN Information Report on their school websites.
Our Accessibility Policy and Plan can be found on the key information page of our school's website.
