At Marton Mnaor Primary School, we recognise that all children have individual needs.
Some children may experience difficulties with particular aspects of the curriculum or have needs in a particular area. The Special Educational Needs and Disability Code of Practice recognises four main areas of need.
- Communication and Interaction
- Cognition and Learning
- Social, Emotional & Mental Health
- Sensory and/or Physical Needs
Children can present with difficulties in any one of the above areas or in more than one area. Marton Manor Primary School offers pupils with Special Educational Needs and Disability (SEND) a high quality education. We try to ensure that any child who shows signs of a particular need is recognised as early as possible through our graduated response, and then relevant assessments and/or individual support plans can be put in place.
We are able to support pupils through additional staffing, interventions and therapies, physical adaptations to the building such as ramps and handrails, a disabled toilet and shower facilities and through the use of specific resources such as writing slopes and coloured overlays.
Mrs Blades is the Special Educational Needs and Disabilities Co-ordinator (SENDCo) and will help with identification, assessment and providing support for children with special educational needs and /or disabilities throughout the school.
If you have any concerns about your child regarding special educational needs and disabilities, you can speak to your child’s class teacher or make an appointment to speak with Mrs Blades.
Marton Manor also has a Local Authority Funded Additionally Resourced Provision for pupils with a diagnosis of Autism. For more information please see the Support Base page
