Provision for children with Special Educational Needs

We pride ourselves on our SEND provision here at Springhead Infants, we work in partnership with parents and agencies to ensure we provide the very best support for your child. We embrace the fact that every child is different and, therefore, the educational needs of every child are different – this is certainly the case for children with Special Educational Needs.  


All the furniture we provide for learning is designed for the age and suitability of the activities we do.  We are a friendly school and the teachers are available at the start and end of each day for ‘handovers’ and the sharing of information. 


All the statutory policies with regards to Equality, SEND, Inclusion and many more are available on our website or alternatively they can be requested from the school office.  A wide variety of other information is available on the school website, on the noticeboards in the playground and via the regular communication with parents e.g newsletters. 


The school has a range of resources specifically to be used for children with SEN.  We use visual/pictoral timetables, workstations, easy grip pencils, first and then boards, SEN visual timers and specialist programmes. We us a range of software e.g Espresso to help pupils to access and make progress in subjects they find difficult. 


We have a federation SENCo, a person who works in all our 3 schools on all matters related to Special Educational Needs. Miss Heidi Reitze is our SENCo, you can find out much more about her role and our offer as a school by reading the document below.
