Special Educational Needs (SEN)

The whole school community values the diverse nature of the school population and all children at some time in their education might need additional support in a particular area of their learning and understanding or in developing social skills.

Whatever the need we will ensure that through early identification and intervention an appropriate programme is provided with parental involvement at an early stage. This may simply be additional support in the classroom or could be a more structured programme such as First Class @ Number or Lexia. Some children may also receive speech and language therapy.

In addition, Lambs Lane has a resource unit which is designed to meet the needs of children with a wide range of special educational needs, including those with a physical disability and/or complex needs. The school has been adapted to allow easy access to all areas of the school environment. If it is appropriate, children are integrated into a mainstream class with their peers and this is arranged on a flexible basis according to individual need.

Very able children also have special needs and we ensure work is planned to challenge these children through problem solving and enrichment activities. We recognise that children may be gifted and talented in many different areas of the curriculum and opportunities are provided to address their individual needs whether it is academic, creative or sporting.

Please see below links to our local offer, inclusion and SEN policy, our accessibility plan, our aspiration and achievement document and further information on our resource unit. More detail can also be found in the Special Educational Needs and Disability Code of Practice.
