Physical and/or Sensory Needs

Some children and young people require special educational provision because they have a disability which prevents or hinders them from making use of the educational facilities generally provided SEND Code of Practice, 2015, 6.34.


Sensory and physical needs can range from visual and/or hearing impairment, sensory seeking behaviours, physical disabilities and multi-sensory impairments.  We work closely with parents/carers and where appropriate, external agencies to provision effectively for these children so that they have equal access to our curriculum and school life.  We also have a small indoor and outdoor sensory area where children with sensory needs are able to access regularly.
