At Gateford Park Primary School we believe that all children should be valued equally within a climate of support.
All children may experience difficulties with their learning at some stage in their educational career. Special Education Needs may arise in any pupil at any intellectual level and may stem from learning, behavioural, emotional, social and physical problems. In implementing this policy we believe pupils will be helped to overcome these difficulties.
We aim to provide every child with access to a broad and balanced education. This includes the National Curriculum in line with the Special Educational Needs Code of Practice.
The fundamental principles of the school policy are that all children have the right to a broad and balanced curriculum. We will value individual children’s strengths and try to help them develop to their full potential. We will try to promote life-long learning.
Our aims to achieve this are:
