Special Educational Needs & Disabilities
At King Charles, we believe that every child is unique and has individual needs.
King Charles is an inclusive school and welcomes all children. We have a dedicated staff who are trained to personalise learning in order to meet the needs of all children in our care. At times, children may require additional support, either short or long term, to make progress and fulfil their potential.
Examples of support we offer may include:
>Reading, writing or mathematics interventions
>Social, emotional or behaviour programmes
>Visual, speech and language, hearing or mobility support
All children with special educational needs & disabilities have individual targets recorded on an individualised provision map (IPM). Parents, and pupils (where appropriate), will be invited to termly meetings to review progress against their targets and will be involved in setting new targets for the term ahead.
Parents are welcome to make an appointment via the school office to meet with the class teacher or SENCO at any time to discuss pupil progress or how to best support their child at home. The Special Educational Needs Coordinator (SENCO) is Mrs Kirsten Spargo (National Award in Special Educational Needs Co-ordination qualification achieved 2013-2014).
Our school has two lifts, one housed in the ‘new’ building and one in the ‘main’ building to ensure wheelchair access to the first floor classrooms. There is a disabled toilet with a hoist and a changing table located in the main building. Space can be made available for simple physiotherapy. Ramps are used to ensure access to all parts of the school and grounds. The staff car park has a dedicated disabled badge holder space.
