We pride ourselves on being a very inclusive school. Through a ‘Learning without limits’ approach, we personalise learning to allow every child to make progress and be successful.  Every child’s attainment is continually assessed and their progress is tracked and evaluated.  In this way, we can quickly identify any child with additional needs.

Our Special Educational Needs Policy is reviewed annually to reflect changes in national legislation and Local Education Authority provision. Our policy details how we identify SEN .

Parents are consulted and fully involved from the start.  Through carefully constructed Personal provision plans , Behaviour Plans or Provision Maps,  extra support and opportunities are provided for social,  academic, intellectual and physical development.  Our schools are well resourced to cater for these needs and when necessary,  we have expert external support services and agencies to support us.

Both schools are single storey and are accessible to wheelchair users. We have a disabled toilets and a disabled shower room which includes a second disabled toilet and adjustable changing beds.

The schools share a Special Educational Needs Coordinator (SENCo), our Assistant Headteacher, Mrs Emma Hardy. She is available every day should you want to discuss any concerns or worries about your child. Appointments can be made through the School Office or you could ask your child’s class teacher to arrange a mutually convenient meeting time.



This very detailed report for parents will answer all of your SEN questions. Details of how we support SEN pupils, including specific learning difficulties like Dyslexia, and the support available to parents is included in this report.

If you have any questions, please contact Emma Hardy, the SENCo, either by e-mail (ehardy@yattonschools.co.uk) or by arranging an appointment with her through the schools’ Office.
