Special Educational Needs

In our school we acknowledge that some children have additional needs that need additional support and monitoring. Miss Sanderson is the schools Special Educational Needs Co-ordinator (SENCo).

The work that is carried out in school is with regard to the new 2014 Special Needs Code of Practice.

In school we have a range of support staff who offer additional support groups and a Learning Mentor who work with children with a range of needs through nurture groups, social and emotional support and 1:1 support sessions.

We regularly seek advice and support from external agencies such as:

County Educational Psychologist
CAMHS – Counselling
Speech and language therapy service
Longlands Child Development Centre
Specialist teachers

The school has contributed to the Lancashire Local Offer (as required by the new Code of Practice) and this can be read via the link below.

The file attached is a copy of the schools Special Educational Needs policy. It details how SEN provision is organised in school and gives key information.

Anyone with any queries with regards to SEN in school should contact Miss Sanderson, the schools SENCo.
