The school has special needs group provision and we have a Special Needs Co-ordinator, who has responsibility for supporting children with special needs. The school will always consult with parents as soon as it is thought that a child needs additional support with learning or behaviour.
MAT SENCO = Mr Tom Ward

Children who need learning support will be taught both within their own class base, individually or in small groups appropriate to their learning needs. They will receive specific help from their class teacher, the special needs co-ordinator, the learning support advisory teacher and teaching assistants.
The school works hard to meet the requirements of the Code of Practice for Children with Special Educational Needs and allocates considerable resources to enable all children to reach their potential. Analysis of assessments every term and KS1/2 SATs results every year monitors the progress made by SEN pupils compared to their peers. A copy of the policy for Special Educational Needs is available from the school on request.
