Special Needs

We value and celebrate our school’s diversity and provide appropriate support in order for children to become confident, independent learners and global citizens. Our Learning Support team is there to support your child to engage with the curriculum if they have additional learning needs.

When a child needs support that can’t be provided through differentiated lessons in the classroom or following the diagnosis of a specific learning need, they can receive Special Educational Needs (SEN) support.

In consultation with the classroom teacher and according to the child’s level, the Learning Support team will recommend the appropriate number of sessions. Parents will be informed before the sessions begin. This support will be reviewed on a termly basis. An Individual Education Plan is provided to inform parents of the learning targets that will be prioritised and how they will be met.

When appropriate, the class teacher and the SEN teacher will meet with external specialists such as psychologists or Speech and Language Therapists and the parents to ensure a common approach is followed.

To ensure a smooth transition to our school, and to enable us to provide the right support from the first day, it is important we are informed of any support a child is already receiving in their current school when you register.
