It is important to us that every child is valued and their unique qualities recognised. We work closely with parents to achieve this. We are delighted to have achieved both the Autism Aware Award and the Dyslexia Aware Award.
We provide appropriate support for children with additional learning needs through our specialist teaching and support team. Children who receive additional support will have a Personal Learning Plan, outlining the provision and learning objectives. The Personal Learning Plan is produced with parents and the child.
The majority of additional support takes place within the classroom; some children may be supported by a member of our specialist team which includes a Learning Mentor and a Pastoral Support Lead together with four teaching assistants who provide additional support across the school.
We aim to provide a high level of support to children with dyslexia and associated difficulties. Our SEND policy provides details of how we identify and meet the needs of these children. The following websites have a wealth of information on dyslexia and how to support a child with dyslexic type difficulties at home:

Educational Inclusion is about equal opportunities for all pupils. It pays particular attention to the provision for, and achievement of, different groups of pupils.
