Special Educational Needs
If our experience and expertise shows that a child may have Special Educational Needs, we will discuss this with Parents/Carers.
At St Stephens Infant’s School we recognise that some children may require extra help for some of the curriculum while in school. This could be for academic, social or behavioural reasons. There are ongoing identification procedures for SEND as part of our continuous assessment. The Code of Practice for Special Education Needs provides a structure to support pupils in their learning. It is recognised that at any one time up to 20% of pupils may have a special educational need during their time in school. For many children this will only be for a short time, for others it may be for all of their school life.
