Special Educational Needs may relate to learning, emotional needs, sensory impairment, physical disability or medical condition.

Our Main Purpose Is: 

  • to identify support needs as early as possible through a system of referral and assessment
  • to provide a range of sensitive and effective responses to individual needs
  • to facilitate full access to a broad, balanced education taking into account the requirements of the national curriculum
  • to build links with parents as partners. To encourage their participation in the decision making process to support their child’s education
  • to facilitate staff development related to SEN issues
  • to develop links with external agencies and educational support services
  • to seek the views of the students and take them into account during the decision making process
  • to monitor the provision and the progress made
