Asby Endowed School


Special Educational Needs (SEN)


All our children are valued and individual differences are respected and enjoyed. Children progress at different rates and our curriculum reflects this, allowing children opportunities to stretch themselves and develop their strengths and achieve their full potential.


At our school we strive to ensure that the needs of all the children are met. Through observation, monitoring, assessment and liaison with colleagues, early identification of a child with special educational needs can be achieved.


The class teacher will provide an appropriate programme of work for the child who needs support. At a later stage it may become necessary to involve the Special Educational Needs Co-ordinator (SENCO) who with the class teacher would draw up an Individual Education Plan (IEP) for the child. In some circumstances other agencies may need to be involved. Parents/Carers are informed at all stages of the process.


We have a disabled access at the rear of the school and a disabled toilet. Parents of children who have disabilities should contact the school directly to discuss individual requirements.

Children that are Gifted and Talented will be recognised and will have appropriate programmes of work provided for them. Copies of our SEN Policy are available on request.
