The headteacher, staff and governors of the school are committed to the inclusion of children with Special Educational Needs.

All children have the right to an education that will enable them to reach their full potential. We believe that each child has individual and unique needs and acknowledge that some children require more support than others, A child has special educational needs if she/he requires additional or different provision made generally for children of their age. In order to support these children, we recognise their needs and plan accordingly.

We aim to provide access to a rich and broad curriculum, but also offer small group support or individual help where children have specific needs.

As a church school, we aim to develop an ethos of care, empathy and understanding. All children are valued and we aim for all children to experience success, confidence and achievement, and to reach their full potential. We involve parents, carers and the children in the planning and support at all stages of pupil development.

Our Special Educational Needs Co-ordinator manages our special educational needs system, guiding staff in the formulation of Graduated Learning Plans in partnership with pupils and parents to ensure that effective provision is made. We have a positive relationship with our external agencies and use them for additional guidance, assessment and support when necessary.

Our data shows that pupils identified as having special educational needs at our school is very low. There are no trends or specific groups. Children identified as having additional educational needs are identified on our termly provision map and successfully meet the 'exit criteria' which shows progress has been made.
