Special Educational Needs and Disabilities
Welcome to Higham Primary School’s Special Educational Needs Team which consists of Mrs A Dunn
(SENCO) and Mrs J Smith (Assistant SENCO).
At Higham Primary School, we aim to ensure that all pupils are appropriately challenged and motivated to achieve their potential. Children with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities are provided with the support and guidance they need to be successful.
We treat each child as an individual, with an equal emphasis on their academic progress and their emotional well-being. All of our teachers and teaching assistants have a wealth of experience in supporting Special Educational Needs and know the children they work with extremely well.
We work closely with all members of staff to ensure the individual needs of each pupil are met. We liaise with parents, carers and external professionals to ensure appropriate strategies and quality first teaching takes place within the school, enabling each child to become a happy, valued and successful individual.
