Special Educational Needs cover a wide area including physical and medical disabilities; behavioural, emotional and social difficulties as well as intellectual support. At various times in their educational career children mayrequire differing levels of assistance with their learning. If special help is required arrangements are made within the school for their needs to be met as fully as possible. Parents will be consulted at all stages of the process, if necessary external agencies will be consulted and special programmes of work may be devised.
Special Educational Needs provision is carried out in a caring, supportive atmosphere which promotes learning. The school building is accessible for people with disabilities and we have a withdrawal room available for physiotherapy. Acoustic surveys have been carried for the hard of hearing. At Seascale School we continually review our Special Needs provision, and we follow the guidelines as laid down by the LA and the Code of Practice which is available for parents on request at the school.
