Special Educational Needs and Disabilities at Greenvale Infant & Nursery School

At Greenvale Primary School, we celebrate the fact that all children are different and have diverse learning needs and we make sure that we tailor learning opportunities to meet the needs of individual children. 

As a school we strive to support all children to enable them to achieve.  In order to do this many steps are taken to support them through their learning journey.  Quality first teaching is vital. However, for some children there are occasions when further additional support may be needed to help them achieve their targets.

Special Educational Needs and Disabilities or SEND, is a term that is used to describe pupils who have needs over and above those that can be met by good quality classroom teaching.  These needs may be within Speech and Language, Cognition and Learning, Social and Communication Difficulties or Social, Emotional and Mental Health difficulties.  They may be for a short period of time, or throughout a child's educational life.  They may be identified before a child has even entered school or they may come to be recognised at a specific point in their education.

Greenvale Primary School is proud of the work it does with all it's pupils and we have significant strengths working with children with SEND.  We build self-esteem with positive learning experiences and successfully involve children with whole school life.  We recognise SEND with the intention of addressing unmet needs; and enabling children to have an ability to engage, and develop skills and knowledge to achieve, succeed and even excel across all areas of the curriculum.

We follow the guidelines set out in the Code of Practice for SEND.  Teaching staff continually strive to fully understand their pupils and comprehensively meet their needs. 

The School follows the Medway SEND Support Guidance. Children receiving SEND Support generally need a higher level of intervention and may require specialist support and advice.
