Additional Support Needs Guidelines, Learning Overviews, School Update

Additional Support Needs Guidelines:

The school has recently revised its Additional Support Needs Guidelines.  The new guidelines will help to streamline our system for identifying and planning to meet the needs of children requiring additional support.  As part of our new system we aim to improve communication with parents/carers with regard to any additional supports a child may require.  This will include sending a short letter home to inform parents/carers of the focus of the support their child is being given.  The school will continue to encourage parents/carers to contact the school if they have any queries about the support being provided for their child.

Learning overviews:

 During the week beginning 21st January we shall be sending home a one page termly overview of the focus for learning in each class for term 3.  This is in response to last year’s parents’ survey which included feedback requesting more information about what children were learning each term.
