Special Educational Needs (SEN)


Some children who experience difficulties with learning from time to time and need help either to catch up or to go further with their work. We make arrangements for each individual child and carefully assess them to see what stage of special educational need or disability they have.

The child’s class teacher sets appropriate learning objectives and outcomes and support is provided usually in class, or sometimes in small groups working outside the classroom. In some sessions the child may work with a Learning Support Assistant, under the guidance of the teacher.

Our SEN Info report and SEN Policy provide more detail.

Information on provision made by Essex County Council for children with SEN can be found in the Essex Local Offer.
