At Wodensfield our vision statement ‘Aim To Be The Best You Can’ is the back drop for all we do in school, including our work with our pupils with additional learning needs. This site gives families information about the variety of ways we ensure we support our children with special educational needs (SEN) to achieve their potential. Under the terms SEN there are four broad ‘areas of need, these are defined as:
• Communication and Interaction,
• Cognition and Learning, Social,
• Emotional and Mental Health Difficulties
• Sensory and Physical Needs.
There are a number of reasons why a child may be identified as having SEN:
• They are having significant difficulty with their learning and making far less progress than would be expected.
• They have a specific learning difficulty, for example dyslexia.
• They have emotional or mental health difficulties.
• They have difficulties with social communication and interaction.
• They have sensory and/or physical needs, for example hearing impairment.
We pride ourselves in supporting these children and offering a wide range of support from individual one to one interventions such as Every Child a Reader, to small group interventions to differentiated learning tasks to meet the child’s needs. If you have any questions regarding this you should contact your child’s teacher or Mrs J Marshall the Special Educational Needs & Disabilities Co-ordinator.
The SEN governor is Mrs K Jewkes and can be contacted via the school office.
