Special Educational Needs
Our aims are:
- to provide for the individual needs and aspirations of all the children within the school and to ensure early identification of those whom we feel have Special Educational Needs.
- to encourage all pupils, irrespective of ability, to develop an awareness of, and respect for, individual differences.
- to nurture each child’s development by meeting each academic, physical, spiritual, behavioural and emotional need and aspiration.
- to provide a whole school approach where the staff team is committed to developing a climate of warmth and respect which encourages self-esteem, confidence and empathy towards others.
- to ensure we promote, review and evaluate the process of inclusion for all pupils both in the academic and social life of the school.
- to promote social inclusion by reducing truancy and seeking specialist advice and support for disruptive pupils.
- to ensure all children are included by ensuring the national curriculum is accessible to all.
