Special Educational Needs and Disabilities

South Hill Primary School is a fully inclusive mainstream school and our aim is to:


•    raise the achievement of all children, including those with a learning                 difficulty, disability, disadvantage or special educational needs;

•   personalise provision to enable all children to achieve their full potential;

•   recognise and assess additional needs, putting appropriate and timely             intervention in place to ensure that everything is done to remove                       barriers to learning at the earliest opportunity;

•   actively involve parents and carers in the decisions affecting their child’s          education;

•   seek children’s views at all stages of their education.


 In order to achieve these aims we will ensure that: 


•   all adults have the highest aspirations for every child;

•   provision is responsive and well matched to children’s needs;

•   extended services provision makes a difference to outcomes for children        and their families;

•   pupil’s views are used to inform school improvement planning;

•   every child is able to access all areas of school life.
