Special Educational Needs

Supporting children and families through unexpected times of rapid and unpredictable change in the light of coronavirus

If any parents of children with additional needs would like to contact me directly through this difficult time please contact me on :



Stay safe and read lots of books, do practical activities and talk through what you are making or doing.  Any writing or spelling activities can be completed together using some shared writing activities - use coloured pens, crayons and lots of different ways to record ideas.  Getting your child to record what he can see or hear is a great way of helping to organise thoughts.  Then you could play it back and get them to rehearse it. Act out the actions to a practical activity or act out a story they have read or make up one together and then have a go at writing it down - but make it fun.  

There is no pressure at all and often the child-led activities are ones that they enjoy the most and create the best results.  If you have any concerns, please get in touch.

With Kind Regards

Mrs Allen

Special Educational Needs and Disabilities

Navenby Primary school is committed to meeting the educational needs of all our pupils including those children that need additional support. A Special Educational Need is any difficulty or barrier that affects a child's ability to learn and to access the curriculum. A Disability is a long term health condition which causes a difficulty or barrier to learn or to access any area of the curriculum.

We endeavour to ensure that all children are supported through:

· Full involvement of parents/carers as partners

· Making provision for meeting pupils’ special educational needs, the setting and marking of work appropriate to the individual need of the child, and where necessary through the development of individual or group learning programmes

· Establishing and maintaining links with all outside agencies, educational support services, secondary and special schools

· Ensuring all staff can access development programmes concerned with special educational needs

· Monitoring and developing how the school provides for equal access in line with the Disability Discrimination Act.

Our Special Educational Needs Co-ordinator is Mrs Allen. Parents can contact her via the school office or by email carole.allen@navenby.lincs.sch.uk
