Our school has high ambitions for all pupils and treats each child as an individual. We expect our children to participate and achieve in every aspect of school life. However, children sometimes need support to help them access education and achieve their full potential. In school we do this in a number of ways:
Our commitment to equal opportunities is an important aspect of our overall commitment to be a fully inclusive school. We welcome all pupils and staff, irrespective of race, colour, creed or impairment. Every member of staff shares the responsibility to remove barriers to learning for all pupils, including those with special educational needs and/or a disability.
If a teacher, or you as a parent or guardian, feel that your child is experiencing difficulties at school we will be pleased to discuss these, so that we can decide together what is best for your child. We believe that the closer we work together the more successful any help will be. Most issues can be addressed in school in the ways identified above but sometimes it is felt that a child needs a particular kind of help, in which case the help of specialists from outside school may be valuable.
Some children qualify for Pupil Premium (PP) funding, this is additional money for publicly funded schools in England to raise the attainment of disadvantaged pupils and close the gap between them and their peers. Data shows that the children within these categories sometimes need extra support, resources or tuition to achieve their full potential. School allocate this money to address the specific needs of these children.
