Experience of including people with special educational needs and disabilities

 An Overview of the School

Farlingaye High School is committed to providing high quality teaching and learning provision. We promote equality and appreciation of diversity; promote and achieve the highest standards of behaviour; develop independence and creativity; develop positive links with parents / carers and the local and wider community. We have a range of interventions across the school to support children with special educational needs. 

Identifying students’ additional needs

At different times in their education, a student may experience a special need or disability. Typically, this may result in a significant difficulty with regard to learning relative to the majority of other students. They might also have a disability, which prevents or hinders them from accessing educational opportunities compared to others in mainstream classes. Where a learner has an identified special educational need, we will offer provision that supports the student in accessing a normally differentiated curriculum. Parents/carers are informed termly of their child’s progress and there are regular opportunities for discussion. A student’s lack of progress may be for many reasons and it is not always the case that these students have a special educational need. These students may just need a little extra help and support at times to get back on track.
