SEND and Gifted and Talented

Tracking the progress of children from an early age allows us to identify when a child has Special Needs. These special needs may be because of a learning difficultly, a disability or when a child is exceptionally advanced. The School works within the guidelines of the National Code of Practice for Special Educational Needs. Individual programs of work are designed by the Special Educational Needs Co-ordinator for children who need extra help or are particularly able, in order to ensure each child reaches their full potential. The support of outside agencies is called upon where needed.

Opportunities are offered at times for able children to extend their experience, for instance a Science/ICT summer school for high achieving Year 4s as well as cluster maths and art workshops for talented children.
