ROCKMOUNT PRIMARY SCHOOL
Special Educational Needs and Disabilities
Rockmount Primary School is committed to meeting the needs of all our pupils. We believe that all children have the right to an education which allows them, as an individual, to flourish and thrive. Our school policies outline the commitment of the staff and governors to ensure that equality of opportunity is available to all members of the school community.
This means not simply treating everybody in the same way, but understanding and tackling the different barriers school members may face, as well as celebrating and valuing the achievements and strengths of all. At Rockmount, pupils are supported, first and foremost, through quality first teaching and effective differentiation. However, when children need additional support to address difficulties, staff will liaise with parents/carers, colleagues or other professionals to ensure appropriate support is put in place.
There are four broad areas of Special Educational Need:
Cognition and Learning
Communication and Interaction
Social, Emotional Wellbeing and Mental Health
Sensory and Physical Difficulties
The views, wishes and feelings of parents/carers and children are extremely important to us. We endeavour to support you in participating as fully as possible in decisions regarding the provision for your child in order to enable them to achieve the best possible outcomes.
If you have concerns about your child, please speak to their class teacher or the Special Educational Needs Coordinators (SENCos):
