Wherever possible, pupils are placed in classes where fellow pupils are of the same age. This may not always be possible, because of an imbalance of numbers, and sometimes more than one age group may be present in class.
From Year one classes are streamed and pupils are taught in classes, according to their ability for Mathematics and English. These classes are selected by the teachers. All other subjects are taught in their registration classrooms.
Special Education Needs (SEN)
Our school is aware that every child has varying individual needs, whether he/she is particularly gifted, has a general or specific learning difficulty, or medical, emotional or behavioural problems. When planning, teachers set suitable learning challenges and respond to children’s diverse learning needs
A minority of children have particular learning and assessment requirements that could create barriers to learning. These requirements are likely to arise as a consequence of a child having Special Education Needs (SEN).
Teachers take account of these requirements and make provision where necessary to support individuals or groups of children and thus enable them to participate effectively in curriculum and assessment activities.
Children may have special education needs either throughout, or at any time during their school career. Parents will be kept fully informed by the class teacher and Special Needs Co-ordinator and invited into school to discuss any problems.
At all times, the school will work in partnership with the parents to meet the challenge of the child with special needs, so that the most effective and positive provision is secured.
