Special Needs and Disabilities and Acessibility Plan

Special Educational Needs 


Our school has an above average proportion of pupils with high and complex Special Educational Needs which reflects our excellent reputation for our provision and inclusion. Support is given both within class lessons and outside the classroom in our additional specialist Montessori Resource Base. Teachers and Teaching assistants support our children with SEN with our Special Needs Coordinator supporting them and monitoring provision across the school. 


Our enhanced provision Montessori Resource Base caters particularly well for children with specific or additional needs. The Montessori influenced environment is a calm but purposeful environment where the children are involved in small group or individual activities. The equipment and environment is designed to develop children’s concentration, co-ordination and independence.


Carefully designed activities are matched to a child’s Individual Education Plan and are aimed to develop their sensory, numeric, language and practical skills.


Further details about our Special Needs provision can be found in our Special Educational Needs Information Report which is updated annually.


Inclusion Statement


We believe that every child regardless of their background or characteristics should be welcomed, enabled to learn effectively and helped to take part in all aspects of school life in a meaningful way.  


The school's Special Educational Needs Coordinator is Mr Martin Hawrylak.
