Our aim is to ensure that all pupils receive the best opportunities, help and support to achieve success. About one in five of all pupils have a specific special need at some point in their school career. We place high emphasis on the early identification of any such difficulty and plan practical measures between school and home to address the problem.
If we have a concern regarding an aspect of a child’s learning or behaviour, the parent will be contacted immediately to discuss the best way forward. Plans will be made to address the problem, with the school and parent working in partnership. If adequate progress is not made after a set time has elapsed, then a revised plan will be drawn up between teacher and parents.
The SEN code of practice (DfES January 2001) will be used to inform all decisions.
