Inclusion - Special Educational Needs
In many cases parents will themselves realize that their child has special educational needs and seek advice accordingly. In other cases the child’s teacher or the school medical officer may identify a special education need and would contact the parents immediately and discuss the action which should be taken.
As far as possible, children with special needs are catered for in the classroom and their progress is reviewed at regular intervals. Parents are fully consulted and involved and have every opportunity to make their views and wishes known.
Occasionally, the Headteacher may seek parents’ permission to refer a child to the Speech & Language Services, Educational Psychologist or the Education Support Service for assessment and possible extra support. Such referrals follow a set procedure and parents are consulted at every stage.
No child is excluded from school activities on account of their special educational need and we aim to ensure that they have equal access to the curriculum. Anyone having special needs who wishes to attend school events and functions can contact the office and every effort will be made to accommodate them.
