Special Educational Needs and Disabilities at Greenvale Infant & Nursery School

At Greenvale Infant & Nursery 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 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 or SEN, 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 Infant & Nursery School is proud of the work it does with all its pupils and we have significant strengths working within children with special needs.  We build self-esteem with positive learning experiences and successfully involve children with whole school life.  We recognise SEN with the intention of addressing unmet neets; and enabling children to have an ability to engage, and develop skills and knowledge to achieve, succeed and even excel beyond their potential across all areas of the curriculum.

We follow the guidelines set out in the new 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, to ensure that when we identify pupils with SEND and we are comparable with other Medway schools and there is aparity of idenitification.  Children at SEN Support generally need a higher level of intervention and may require specialist support and advice.
