A child or young person has special educational needs (SEN) if they have a learning difficulty or disability that calls for extra support to be put in place. A child of compulsory school age or young person has a learning difficulty or disability if he or she has a significantly greater difficulty in learning than the majority of others of the same age, or has a disability which prevents or hinders him or her from making use of facilities of a kind generally provided for others of the same age in mainstream school.

Your child’s teacher is the first person to contact. They are regularly available to listen to your concerns and to discuss your child’s progress. They will ask how the school can help and will do their best to give you advice for supporting your child’s learning.
Mrs Sharon Brazier (Special Educational Needs Co-ordinator; Inclusion Co-ordinator) is also available to meet with you to discuss your child’s needs. She will be happy to meet with you and the class teacher if you wish, and if any outside agencies are involved, she will talk you through any reports and discuss the best possible ways to support your child. She can signpost you to outside support agencies for help and advice at home.
