West Lynn Primary School supports the needs of all students in a positive and practical way, recognising the rights of every child to have a fully inclusive, broad and balanced experience, both within the curriculum and beyond. We firmly believe that all students have an entitlement to support where a need is identified. Special needs are many and various and are not restricted to students with learning difficulties. At West Lynn Primary School, we are proud of the progress that our SEND learners make.
Reasonable adjustments and provision made within the school will be to support each child in meeting the demands of the national curriculum. Support for children who experience learning difficulties may be provided in various ways, such as the use of specially designed programmes and materials, the setting of defined learning targets, and assistance provided by an additional adult within the classroom.
All students are encouraged to achieve their own potential and, through appropriate support, make progress. Good communication between the school, child and parents, plus regular, termly assessment and review, help to achieve this goal.
