Special Education Needs
A child or young person has special educational needs if he or she has a learning difficulty or disability which calls for special educational provision to be made for him or her. A learning difficulty or disability is a significantly greater difficulty in learning than the majority of others of the same age.
Special educational provision means educational or training provision that is additional to, or different from, that made generally for others of the same age in a mainstream setting in England.
At Mountbatten Primary School, we endeavour to ensure that all pupils have the opportunity to participate fully in the life of the school. We believe that it is essential to provide a caring and supporting environment in which all pupils are valued equally and are given the opportunity to have their needs met in order to develop their full potential.
The four areas of need identified within the SEN Code of Practice underpinning this:
- Cognition and Learning Needs
- Social, Emotional and Mental Health
- Communication and Interaction
- Sensory and/or Physical Needs
For further information about SENCO, or if you want to talk to someone about your child, please contact the school office on (01482) 375224.
The SENCO is Miss Jenny Schofield.
The Governor responsible for Special Educational Needs is Mrs Paula Todd.
