Special Educational Needs
learning difficulties – in acquiring basic skills in school
emotional and behavioural difficulties – making friends or relating to adults or behaving properly in school
specific learning difficulty – with reading, writing, number work or understanding information
sensory or physical needs - such as hearing or visual impairment, which might affect them in school
communication problems – in expressing themselves or understanding what others are saying
medical or health conditions – which may slow down a child’s progress and/or involves treatment that affects his or her education.
Children make progress at different rates and have different ways in which they learn best. Teachers take account of this in the way they organise their lessons and teach. Children making slower progress or having particular difficulties in one area may be given extra help or different lessons to help them succeed.
At Coxheath Primary School we are committed to:
Raising the standards of attainment for all SEN students through a broad, balanced and relevant curriculum that is differentiated to meet individual learning styles.
Creating a climate where all staff are aware that they are responsible for students with SEN and plan their lessons accordingly
Coxheath Primary School supports children in many ways and staff refer to the Mainstream Core Standards when considering which strategies and interventions may be suitable. These have recently been updated and a link to a Parent Guide can be found here.
