Special Education Needs and Disabilities (SEND) 

At Larkfields Junior School, we are proud to have a positive ethos of inclusion for all our children that have additional or special educational needs. All staff, in liaison with parents, work hard to ensure the needs of all children with any additional need are supported and challenged.  

All teaching staff endeavour to ensure that all children make progress and achieve to the best of their ability regardless of their starting point regardless of their gender, ethnicity, religion, social background, sexual identity, physical ability, or educational needs. We recognise that sometimes children may need extra support to achieve to their full potential.

We aim to instil in all our children an understanding of others and seek to encourage respect for ourselves, as well as for our peers, whilst developing confidence, self-esteem and the ability to make decisions.  We foster an environment in which all children are encouraged to take care of each other.

We recognise that some children find mainstream provision a challenge and need a smaller class size with specific teaching methods and differentiated resources and learning opportunities. Through our Enhanced provision, we can provide this style of teaching for children with more complex needs.
