Special Education Needs (SEN)

 

As an inclusive school Goodnestone Church of England Primary School values all children and promotes an inclusive learning environment.

The progress of all children is monitored very carefully, and children’s individual needs are met through high quality class teaching. If it is felt that a child needs additional support to make the expected levels of progress this is put in place through interventions, programmes of work and sometimes extra adult support. This information is outlined on the class provision map. The time your child may need extra provision is variable and if we have continued concerns we may need to seek advice and support from appropriate outside agencies to help us ensure the provision your child receives is appropriate and addresses their individual needs.

Goodnestone Church of England Primary School promotes strong partnerships with parents so we will consult with you and keep you fully informed of the process at all times.

We have successfully integrated pupils with autism, cerebral palsy, dyslexia, social communication difficulties and specific learning difficulties within our school.

The Special Education Needs Coordinator (SENCo) leads and monitors the special educational needs provision in the school. Our school SENCo is Mrs Tracey Cook.

 

If you have any concerns and would like to speak to Mrs Cook please phone the school office on 01304 840329 to make an appointment or email her at tcook@goodnestone.kent.sch.uk
