Special Needs

Category

Children with Special Educational Needs are provided for as part of the continuous range of provision for all pupils. Each teacher has the responsibility to build confidence and self- esteem by allowing every child to experience success and feel respected as a member of the school community. All children are integrated within the school in activities both in and beyond the classroom. The needs of the majority of children are met by differentiated provision within the classroom. If appropriate however, children may be withdrawn in small groups or on a 1:1 basis to receive teaching specific to their needs.

Additional teaching time is also provided by Sutton Borough's Educational Support Services. Close contact is maintained with these agencies to provide advice on supporting children with special educational needs.

There is a graduated approach to Special Educational Needs provision and parents are kept informed at every stage.
