The teachers use a multi sensory approach to support children with additional needs. Teaching is visual, audio and physical supporting active learning.

Children with additional learning needs or learning difficulties are given a Support and Achievement plan (SAP) with identified targets to support the child's learning.

Following assessment and parent teacher meetings children are given a Support and Achievment Plan (SAP) with targets and are supported within the classroom with a teaching assistant during whole class, small group and one to one situations. If the school feels that the child needs more than this support, parents will be asked to fund the individual support the child needs.

We have a good partnership with a private Speech and Language therapist, Occupational therapist and an Educational Psychologist.

In Nursery and Reception we follow the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum and use Development Matters as an assessment tool. In the summer term reception children complete a dyslexia screeening test.

Weekly planning identifies targets for the children to achieve.
