Special Educational Needs and Disabilities

At Belford Primary School, we seek to meet the needs of all our children regardless of age, ability, culture or religion. In line with the SEND code of practice we adopt a graduated approach. This recognises that children learn in different ways and can have different levels of need. If a child is identified as having learning or physical difficulties, they will be given extra support, initially by the class teacher. It may prove necessary to involve outside agencies such as the Educational Psychologist, Speech Therapist and teachers for the visually or hearing impaired, in order to develop suitable programmes for these children. If your child has difficulties you will be kept informed at all stages of their education.
