Special Education Needs
At Foxton School we are committed to meeting the needs of every child in the school, and to supporting them fully, as befits our ‘whole child’ approach.
Special educational needs, once identified, will be the subject of discussion between the school and the child’s parents; the teachers and their support staff will then build a programme of structured support. A ‘need’ can be long or short term, physical, social, academic or emotional, and all children are catered for in this process, including the very able ones. In some circumstances the school may be supported by external agencies.
The governors are committed to providing a high level of classroom support; this benefits all the children, not just those children with special educational needs.
The school is situated on a flat site and we try to keep corridors clear to facilitate easy access with ramped access to some parts of the school. Disabled toilet facilities are available. The colour scheme of the building emphasises doorways and the school is carpeted throughout in order to limit additional noise. The governors have developed an Accessibility Plan which we keep under constant review in order to improve facilities within limitations of our school budget.
The headteacher, Carole Davies is also the school SENCo. Please use firstname.lastname@example.org to contact the SENCo.
