Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND)
At Annfield Plain Infants we look at the educational needs of a student with disabilities and special needs. In liaison with all other professionals involved with the pupil we plan a comprehensive learning package, which will allow for measurable learning opportunities to be put in place. This means that the pupil and all adults involved in supporting that pupil will meet to plan the educational provision best suited to the needs of the individual pupil. At all times we will work closely with parents to ensure that their child receives the very best educational experience that Annfield Plain Infant School can offer.
At Annfield Plain Infants, we recognise that there is always room for improvement, and we would welcome any further suggestions as to how we could improve our accessibility to all, whatever their disability. We have annually invited parents who have movement difficulties to work with the Headteacher in making improvements to the school environment/organisation. See link to accessibility to Policy.
At Annfield Plain Infant School we have a Single Equality and Accessibility Policy, therefore every Annfield Plain Infant pupil is provided with equal opportunity to access all aspects of our curriculum. Annfield Plain Infants welcomes any suggestions as to how we can further improve this facility
If you would like to discuss your SEND requirements in detail please contact the school to arrange an appointment.
