Special Education Needs
SPECIAL EDUCATIONAL NEEDS Coordinators: Mrs J Postlethwaite.
Mrs S Lomax.
Assistant SENCO: Mrs V Simpson.
We have a duty of care for all children in our school. Every child at some time in their school life may need Special Educational help for any number of reasons. The staff are aware of this and are able to seek help and guidance on how to deal with problems as and when they occur. These may be emotional, behavioural, learning or related to a medical problem. The school’s Special Educational Needs co-coordinator advises staff, liaises with parents and outside agencies and works with the children to ensure all their needs are met.
We follow the Code of Practice for children with Special Educational Needs. After careful assessment, individually planned learning programmes and liaison between the Special Needs Co-coordinator, the class teacher and a child's parents, it is sometimes necessary to seek extra support from outside school to help us meet a child's needs. Outside agencies such as the Educational Psychologist, the Speech Therapist, the School Nurse and other professionals are available to us.
