Special Educational Needs
At Griffin Park we respond to all our children’s educational needs and recognise that each individual child may have a special need at some point in their school life. It is the school’s policy to support our children’s needs by positive early intervention. The earlier a need is identified and a programme is put into place the better for the child.
We follow the Revised Code of Practice for Special Educational Needs (SEN). We involve parents from the beginning of our concerns, and set up individual programmes for children, putting in extra support where needed. We work closely with various outside agencies to help us do the very best job for your child.
We have a well-developed policy to ensure that our curriculum closely matches the needs of all our pupils and we make use of resources to provide support when needed. Our school welcomes pupils with SEN and we differentiate work in the classroom at all levels, lower and higher ability.
Children with physical needs are welcome in our school. The school is all on ground level. Our new building work enables better disabled access around the school.
