SEND - Special Educational Needs and Disabilities


If you wish to speak to the SENCO, Mrs Edgal, then please contact her via the school office. If you are a prospective parent/carer of a child with SEND then Mrs Edgal is happy to meet with you virtually or to speak over the phone, to discuss your child’s needs.


We appreciate that all children have individual ‘needs’ and we attempt to support these as part of the caring ethos we wish the school to have; legally a child is said to have a special need if they need a significantly different  learning journey from the rest of the children.  This may be due to behavioural, emotional, medical or learning needs.  Learning needs include more able children.  

We aim to match the interventions to the needs of the children in our school.  Typically we offer additional support in:

  • Maths
  • Reading and writing
  • Fine and gross motor skills
  • Speech and language, and communication skills
  • Social and emotional support
  • Enrichment in areas such as ‘thinking skills’, art, drama

In order to support all children to achieve, we set termly goals for each year group which will be shared with parents.  Children who fall below expected targets are focused upon, and if need be, given additional support and early intervention.  Initially we may monitor the child to check concerns and identify their needs more precisely.
