Implementation of Special Educational Needs support at Walgrave
If your child has been described as having special educational needs it means that they definitely find it much harder to do things in school than other children of the same age. It may be that your child finds it harder because of things like:
- A physical problem
- A medical problem
- A problem with behaviour
- Or difficulties with reading, writing or speaking and understanding
Our SEN policy explains the procedures and the support the school will fulfil for any
child in our school with such difficulties.
If you think your child has special educational needs you should talk to:
- Your child’s teacher
- The SEN coordinator (Mrs. McElroy)
- The Headteacher
- Or our governor for special educational needs, Dr. Martyn Rose
You and your child’s teacher may try to help your child first by working with the school to find strategies for school and home to support them.
This will escalate to additional small group and 1:1 help from other team members, and a range of strategies will be implemented so your child is supported to ensure they achieve to their full potential.
Further detail is given in our SEN policy.
Our school site is across several levels. However, as a school we have an absolute determination to live as an inclusive organisation and where children and adults in our community have mobility issues or disabilities we will strive to meet their needs through the careful organisation of classrooms and school structures. Please contact Mr Ayton to discuss how we can work with you to ensure equality of access is maintained and promoted.
