Children with academic learning needs are accomodated within the main stream classroom where their work is differentiated by the classroom teacher appropriately.  They also recieve one-to-one support to access learning activities specifically related to their personalised 'Learning Plan'.  Learning Plans are formally revised each term andcopies sent home to parents.


Children with social and behavioural needs receive additional support from the Learning Mentors in school; Mrs Quinn in the juniors and Mrs Birch in the infants.  


Some children may also require support from the wider 'Wellbeing' team in school.

 This team consisits of:

Miss Liddle (Family Support Worker)

Mrs Anand (Counsellor)

Mr Crombie (Educational Psychologist)

If you have any concerns about your child's Special needs, please contact your child's class teacher in the first instance. If your child is already on the Special Needs and Disabilities register then contact Miss Barlow via the school office or speak to her informally about making an appointment - she stands on the infant door each morning.
