Special Educational Needs and Disability (SEND)
Here at Shears Green Infant School we value the abilities and achievements of all children. We truly believe that each and every child can achieve regardless of any additional needs. We endeavour to provide the best learning conditions for each pupil, promoting development in understanding and social maturity alongside their peers wherever possible.
Special Education Needs are identified early and the school works closely to plan a curriculum to meet the children’s needs. We work in partnership with our children, parents, carers, specialists and governors. The school values the abilities and achievements of all its pupils and celebrates small steps of progress.
All children, regardless of additional educational needs, are fully included in all school activities.
