Local offer & SEN
At Bishop John Robinson Primary School we welcome children with disabilities and special educational needs. Children’s progress is regularly monitored by teachers and if a child appears to have a particular need, this will be identified quickly and discussed with our Special Educational Needs Co-ordinator (SENCO) Mrs Tanya Ballentyne-Evans and the parents concerned. Parental engagement and support in meeting children’s educational needs is a vital if all children are to reach their potential.
Most support is given within the class through planned support from the teacher and working in small groups with a member of support staff. Specialist help may be given through withdrawal and individual support. We may also refer to outside agencies with specialised knowledge.
If you have concerns about your child and think they may be experiencing difficulty with their learning please feel free to discuss this with the class teacher or contact the Special Needs Co-ordinator on the school telephone number.
Please see the attached 'Local Offer' and SEND policy at the bottom of this page.
