At Sutton upon Derwent C of E Primary School, we welcome each child into our school community as a valued member and acknowledge that every individual has particular qualities and needs. We value each unique individual made in the image of God.
A child has Special Educational Needs if (s)he has a learning difficulty or a disability that calls for special provision to be made for him or her. At school age, this means (s)he has a significantly greater difficulty in learning than the majority of others 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 schools.
Pupils may have different types of SEND
- communication and interaction (eg. speech and language difficulties, ASD)
- cognition and learning (general or specific learning difficulties such as dyslexia)
- social, emotional and mental health (eg. ADHD, attachment disorders)
- physical and sensory.( eg. hearing , visual impairment, dyspraxia, hyper-sensitivity)
At Sutton upon Derwent C of E Primary School, we aim to identify pupils with SEND and ensure that their needs are met so that that they make the best possible progress, achieve their full potential and join in with all the activities of the school. We aim to work in partnership with pupils and parents at all times.
Day to day support for all pupils is directed by the class teacher with additional support from Teaching Support Assistants.
Should you have any further queries, please feel free to approach your child's class teacher or Mrs Garcia (Special Educational Needs and Disability Coordinator) who can be contacted via the school office.
