Special Educational Needs
“A child has Special Educational Needs if he or she has a learning difficulty which calls for Special Educational Provision to be made for him or her.” (SEN and Disability Code of Practice 2014).
At Nettleham Infant School we pride ourselves on working closely with children, parents and other professionals to adapt the curriculum to meet the needs of all children. We are a fully inculsive school and strive to allow all children to meet their potential.
The SEN Code of Practice identifies 4 broad areas of SEN. These are:
Children who may be experiencing difficulties in one or more of these areas are initially monitored by their class teacher and the schools Special Needs Co-ordinator who, in consultation with the Head teacher, will decide what further action needs to be taken, if any. Working in partnership with parents is fundemental to providing the best support and we work hard to support parents and keep them up to date with how their child is progressing.
Further information can be found in the schools Children with Additional Needs: Parent Information Pack which you can find on this page.
We hope the information on this page can answer any questions you may have, but if you have any further questions, queries or need any clarification please contact us using one of the methods at the bottom of this page.
