Children with Special Needs

These children have the services of trained specialists available to them.  The class teacher in conjunction with the Headteacher monitors children who are exceptionally gifted and capable, as well as those children who experience difficulties and problems.  A member of staff is responsible for the co-ordination of Special Needs provision and the maintenance of a register of such pupils. Those children with a Statement of Special Educational Needs receive such teaching as the Statement recommends.

If you are worried about your child in any way, please consult the Class Teacher and/or Headteacher.  Information and advice will then be given.  The school has the services of learning support assistants who offer further help.                  

If the difficulties continue the Educational Psychology Services may be called upon for assistance.  You will be fully involved and informed about any arrangements that need to be made as your child's needs are assessed.

School Ethos

The school tries to promote a sense of caring and security for all its pupils.  We encourage the children to have respect for others and themselves.  All pupils are encouraged to have a sense of belonging to the wider community as well as the school community.

In order to achieve these aims we try to involve the children as much as possible with the everyday life of the school.  Children are given responsibility and trust.  They are shown by example where possible.  Collective worship plays an important part in promoting the school's ethos.  Teamwork is encouraged, as well as pride in the individual's own work.
