Special Educational Needs

At Alderman Jacobs Primary School, we aim to meet the educational needs and raise the achievement of all our pupils.

Some pupils will, permanently or from time to time, have a significantly greater difficulty in learning than the majority of children of their age. Some may have special needs or disabilities which prevent or hinder them from making use of the facilities provided for our pupils. We will give these pupils individual consideration and make special provision for them, taking into account their views, strengths and needs and working in partnership with parents and others as necessary.

All pupils are offered full access to a broad, balanced and relevant education with adaptations that ensure equity for everyone.

We encourage and support all pupils to become independent and to take responsibility within the school. Our environment includes easy access to the whole site, a sensory garden and calm room and a Nurture facility with an outdoor regulation zone. We believe that everyone in the school community has a positive and active part to play in achieving this aim.
