The school will seek early identification of any child needing particular attention through normal monitoring procedures used for all children throughout the school. We will try to provide special help ourselves and also call on the Support Services provided by the Local Authority. This may take the form of visits from specialist teaching staff and/or from an educational psychologist. Parents will be involved at all stages of this process.
There is a designated Governor for Special Educational Needs and the school also has a Special Needs Co-ordinator. The names of the current holders of these positions are listed in the Special Educational Needs Policy.
Children with a Statement of Special Educational Need will be given extra support to meet the needs identified in the statement. The school has a policy for children with Special Educational Needs, a copy of which is available for inspection in school and via the website.
The school is committed to the full integration of pupils with learning difficulties or physical disabilities and endeavours to provide the best possible education for all children.
With regard to the admission of pupils with SEN or disabilities, the school adheres to South Gloucestershire's Admissions Policy.
