At Daisyfield we cater for children with a wide range of needs. Mrs Gagg is the Special needs Co-ordinator.
Children may also be withdrawn from classes to work in small groups with support staff, when it is felt that this would be more beneficial to the child. These groups include Read, Write Inc Reading , Speech and Language and Motor Skills.
The whole school is wheelchair friendly and all areas are accessible.
If children are experiencing problems with learning after work has been carefully differentiated they will be assessed and placed on the special needs register. Outside agencies may be involved when the child's needs cannot be met by school staff alone. If children have severe needs then a Education, Health and Care Plan (EHCP) will be applied for.
Outside agencies who currently come into school include: Speech and Language Therapists, Occupational Therapists, Physiotherapists, Advisory teachers from SEND Support Service, an Educational Psychologist and the school nurse.
Last year we ran Parent Workshops on Literacy, Numeracy and Dyslexia and these were very popular.
Parents are encouraged to come into school whenever they have concerns about their children.
