Special Educational Needs and Disabilities

At Middleton all pupils are recognised as individuals with different strengths and needs. Sometimes children are identified who have particular learning needs that are not being met through the mainstream curriculum.

The school supports children in different ways, which includes differentiated activities, small group work, pre- teaching or implementing adult support.

Middleton maintains a register of children with Special Educational Needs, which helps to ensure children receive the appropriate level of support. Parents will be informed if their child needs to go on to the register.

The categories on the SEN register are:

School Support

Children who need additional support, which can involve seeking advice from agencies outside the school, such as speech and language therapists. Children at School Support may need a Communication Passport, small group interventions and their provision included on the teacher's daily planning.

Education Health Care Plan

Some children will have special needs, which require a higher level of support or adult expertise to manage. It may therefore be necessary to apply for an Education Health Care Plan. This ensures that the school is meeting the child's specific needs and that all agencies involved with the child have an input.

If your child is on the Special Needs register you will be informed.

Please do not hesitate to contact the SENCo, Steve Hughes (acting), if you have any questions or concerns. Please email and mark for the attention of SENCo.
