The term 'special educational needs' (SEN) has a legal definition, referring to children who have learning difficulties or disabilities that make it harder for them to learn or access education than most children of the same age.
Many children will have SEN of some kind at some time during their education. Help will usually be provided in their ordinary, mainstream early education setting or school, sometimes with the help of outside specialists.
If your child has special educational needs, they may need extra help in a range of areas, for example:
We are a highly inclusive school. Whatever your child's need - we will work with you to make sure he or she is ably supported, challenged and inspired to be the very best they can be. Any additional learning need a child has is an opportunity for home and school to work in dedicated partnership.
All of our teaching and support staff have completed additional training in autistic spectrum disorders. We believe that getting inclusion right positively influences the teaching strategies and techniques we use in every lesson. We're passionate about inclusion - come and talk to us!
