Special Needs

Our special educational needs policy is in keeping with the school’s aims. Providing equal opportunities for all children, the school ensures that everyone enjoys a broad and balanced curriculum. We aim to identify children with special educational needs as early as possible but remain vigilant should problems manifest themselves later.

We follow a specific Code of Practice for children with special needs and liaise with outside agencies where necessary for advice and support. We believe that parents/carers cooperation is vital so a partnership with parents/carers is implicit in our philosophy.

Pastoral Care

Pastoral care for the children is primarily the responsibility of the class teacher although the Headteacher is always happy to see parents/carers if required.

We have a strong sense of the “family of Limpsfield School” where all staff get to know all children and share responsibility for their wellbeing. We see behaviour and discipline as a whole school responsibility and not just a class based one. The school has a disability equality programme providing quality of access to all areas and all provisions. The updated programme is available, on request, at the school office.
