Additional Needs


     Mrs Haskins - Additional Needs Leader                  

There are many different reasons why a child may have additional needs and therefore require extra help. Children who need support in an area are identified as early as possible and progress is monitored and reviewed regularly. Parents are involved and kept informed every step of the way, with special intervention programmes set up to support the child’s development. Within school, we have considerable experience and resources for helping children with additional needs. The 2014 Special Educational Needs and Disability Code of Practice: 0 to 25 years (updated in 2015) lies at the heart of the school’s Additional Needs Policy and sets out the processes and procedures that all organisations should follow to meet the needs of children.
