SEN Overview

 

At Mallard Primary School we value the abilities and achievements of all our pupils, and are committed to providing for each pupil, the best possible environment for learning.  Inclusion is at the heart of our school.  We recognise that parents understand their children and their opinions need to be valued and listened to, working in partnership with school to support the needs of all children.

We believe that all children should have access and a common entitlement to a broad and balanced academic and social curriculum, and to be fully included in all aspects of life.  We believe that all children should be equally valued in school.  We will strive to eliminate prejudice and discrimination, and to develop an environment where all children can flourish and feel safe.

We encourage all members of our school community to be aware of their own strengths and needs, and to understand how they can overcome difficulties, including being able to identify who can support them.

We recognise that many pupils at some point in their school life may experience difficulties which affect their learning and recognise that these may be long or short term.  We aim to identify these needs as they arise and provide teaching and learning contexts which enable every child to achieve his/her full potential.

If you want to discuss any concerns, please speak to your child's class teacher or contact Mrs Marsden who is our Special Needs Co-ordinator (SENCo).
