Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND)
St Nicholas Primary is an inclusive school. Some children experience greater difficulties than average for those in the same age group. These children are then offered extra support in their work and may sometimes be identified as having Special Educational Needs and/or Disabilities. We strive to ensure that children with SEND have equality of opportunity to succeed, that their individual talents are recognised and that they reach their full potential.
The school follows the SEND criteria set by the Local Authority. We implement the SEND Code of Practice and comply with the duties of the Equality Act 2010 and Special Educational Needs and Disabilities Regulations 2014. The children's progress is closely monitored and reviewed at regular intervals by the Inclusion Co-ordinator, the class teacher and parents. The school is also able to access many support agencies in order to support children with specific difficulties and we work closely with all outside professionals.
Children with SEND are supported in a variety of ways. Children may work in small groups with a Teaching Assistant. This usually occurs within the classroom, but on occasions it may be more appropriate to withdraw the group, or an individual child, to work outside the classroom.
The school policy for SEND and Inclusion is also available for parents to view either from the School Office or via the website on our policies page, or click om the link below.
