Special Educational Needs

It is important that all children who experience difficulties or who have a specific need (i.e. educational, behavioural, social, physical) be catered for if at all possible and the organisation of the school is such that this can happen. The school is equipped with a toilet suitable for a physically handicapped child confined to a wheelchair.


Children with special educational needs have an individual education plan, agreed by teachers and parents. In some cases it may be felt that the Educational Psychologist should be called in to give advice, which may eventually lead, with the agreement of parents, to the Local Authority agreeing to a Statement of Special Educational Needs for an individual child.

Children who are gifted or talented in any way are encouraged to stretch themselves further. We take part in events organised with other schools in the city to enhance the opportunities for these children.Parents are very welcome to discuss any concerns that they have for their child with the staff or the SENCO of the school.
