Special Needs Provision


Pupils placed at Early Years/School Action receive support within the classroom or a small group activity.  Pupils placed at Early Years/School Action Plan receive advice from specialist outside agencies which is then either used by support staff within the school or specialist staff coming in to the school.  Pupils with a Statement of Special Educational Needs receive specific support from a member of the Support Staff Team within the school based upon the requirements set out in their statement.

During the year pupils receive support from the Educational Psychology Service, the Behaviour Support Service, the Specific Learning Difficulties Unit, the Gwent Health Speech and Language Service, the Educational Service for the Hearing Impaired and Eveswell Children's Centre.  The school's team of support staff work with pupils on the SEN register throughout the school as well as supporting groups and individuals within classrooms.

During the year pupils can move from School Action to School Action Plus following reviews of their Individual Education Plans and assessments by outside agencies.  Also pupils can move from School Action Plus to School Action following successful intervention programmes.
