SEND - Local Offer
All North Yorkshire maintained schools have a similar approach to meeting the needs of pupils with Special Educational Needs and/or Disabilities (SEND.) They are supported by the Local Authority to ensure that all pupils, whatever their specific needs, make the best possible progress in school. The Local Authority publishes its Local Offer which provides information for children and young people with special educational needs (SEND) and their parents or carers in a single place.

A number of children will experience difficulties of one sort or another during their time in school. Whatever the difficulties may be, (academic, medical or behaviour), they will be more easily overcome if school and family work together in partnership. Should a child have a special educational need that requires additional and different educational provision, in consultation with parents, our school provides differentiated work and an Individual Education Plan (IEP) for that child. If further help is required to support a child's learning, our school may request the involvement of the L.A.'s Support and Advisory Service who will advise on the most appropriate course of action. This may include provision of specialist equipment for disabled pupils, speech therapy, assessment by the Educational Psychologist etc. There is a designated member of staff for S.E.N. and a link Governor. Usually the teachers will identify when a child needs extra support but sometimes the parents may be the first to notice it. Children who are identified as Gifted and Talented also have special educational needs.
There are times, when to maximise learning, we ask the children to work in small groups, or in a one-to-one situation outside the classroom.
