Crest Infant School is proud of its inclusive approach.The school’s SEND (Special Educational Needs and Disability) policy, which has been revised to incorporate the SEN Code of Practice, has been successfully implemented.

Mrs Marco, our SENCO (Special Educational Needs Co-ordinator) and Inclusions Manager, leads our SEN Support Team and maintains an overview of all children with special educational needs. The class teachers are responsible for providing support to those children who are being monitored and our team of TAs (Teaching Assistants) and therapeutic specialist agencies support them. Children who have an Educational Health Care Plan are often given one-to-one support.

We provide Play Therapy and Pet Therapy for children who may need some additional social and/or emotional support.

Please talk to your  child’s class teacher if your child has been identified as requiring additional support or if you have any concerns. It is most important that home and school work together.

Where children are thought to require more help than the school can provide, we may consult external agencies such as Educational Psychology, Child Guidance, Behaviour Support and Speech and Language.
