At Little Reddings, our job is to ensure that your child achieves the very best they can, no matter what barrier there may be with their learning. Approximately one in five children will have special education needs at some time during their school career – this may mean having a learning difficulty and/or physical difficulty that makes it harder for them to learn than most children of the same age.
We have a team of staff who may be involved in supporting your child at Little Reddings. These include:
Children within school will get support that is specific to their individual needs. This may be all provided by the class teacher or may involve other staff in the school, staff who visit from Torbay’s central services or staff who visit from outside agencies such as the Speech and Language Therapy Service.
The Local Authority has special arrangements for assessing children and deciding which facilities are appropriate for the needs of each individual child. Parents and Carers may request that an assessment be made.
A formal assessment may result in an Education, Health and Care (EHC) plan being issued. This EHC will indicate exactly what provision a child will receive.
Children are encouraged to take responsibility for their own learning and are helped to develop high self-esteem and motivation for learning. We involve the children (and parents) in every step of their own learning, for example, children help to construct their ISPs (Individual Support Plans) used for children who require a unique curriculum.
