Special Educational Needs
Stranmillis Primary School has a whole school approach to provision for children with additional needs. We aim to identify as early as possible where children need additional support and put in place the appropriate strand of the SEN Code of Practice. Identification is based on standardised and diagnostic assessments, teacher observations and parental concerns. We work closely with educational psychologists to provide support and development programmes for children with special educational needs. Pupils may be placed on the Special Educational Needs register for a short or long term period. Reviews are held with parents to keep them informed of the progress their child is making. Support is provided by the classroom teachers, the Special Educational Needs Co-ordinator, our classroom assistants and specialised teachers from a range of external agencies.
