Special Educational Needs

The school assists in the implementation of a broad range of strategies designed to enhance early learning and to prevent and manage learning difficulties.

To this end, our Special Educational Needs (SEN) team is equipped to support pupils with a range of different academic needs.

From Year 3, pupils sit for Cognitive Abilities Tests (CATs). These help to identify young children who are possibly experiencing learning difficulties. Results of these tests are published confidentially to parents and to teaching staff and help our teachers to ensure that pupils can be supported, and challenged, appropriately.
