Special Educational Needs & Disability
We give high priority to children in our school who may need extra support with their learning. This could be children who are having some particular difficulty or who are particularly able in an area and need a programme to support them. We also look to support children using the government’s Pupil Premium.
If a child is having some difficulties with their school work, the class teacher will have a discussion with the Special Needs Coordinator (SENCo). Informal advice may be given and this may be all that is needed. Where further concerns exist additional targeted provision is identified. Support to reach these targets may come from a Teaching Assistant working individually or with small groups of children. It may also be through the class teacher targeting a group of children with additional work and support for a short period of time.
In light of the changes outlined in the Children & Families Act (2014) at Nova Primary School we actively consulted with parents, carers and young people to gather their views about how these changes have affected them. If you would like further information on the changes please follow this link: SEND Changes Sept 2014

All Governing Bodies must publish an SEN information report under the Children & Families Act (2014). This will include details of the expertise already available in school and how you can access specialist equipment and services.
