At St Mary’s Fields Primary School we take care to ensure that all children have an excellent start to their education, no matter when they join the school. We are committed to helping each child make the best possible progress. We use many strategies to support learning and we aim to ensure that our children enjoy and achieve in all areas of their personal, social and academic education.
However, whether in the Foundation Stage or later in the Primary classes, some children find it more difficult to learn and make progress. Children can have needs and difficulties that affect their ability to process their learning. For example, a child with emotional and social difficulties may have problems making friends or a child may have specific difficulties with reading, writing or maths. A child may have a disability such as a hearing or visual impairment. Children who are identified as having significant difficulties in school are categorised as having special educational needs or SEND.
