How do we identify and assess children with Special Educational Needs?
Early identification is the key. You as parents know your child best and we like to form close working relationships with our parents.
Pupil assessment is an ongoing process and we will speak to you as parents regularly both about your child’s achievements and their needs.
Assessment helps us to provide the appropriate support for your child. We may hold a review meeting with yourself and other agencies to put a plan in place.
We have a Special Educational Needs Support teacher who works with us one day a week.
