The school is committed to social inclusion and equal opportunities for all children whatever their needs. All children have the right of access to all aspects of the curriculum and the school regards it as a duty to ensure all children achieve this. We work closely with parents and children to achieve the maximum potential for every pupil. Children are assessed regularly and arrangements are made for support to be given as appropriate. This ranges from differentiated work, extra assistance in class, individual education plans, external support (if required) through to Statements of Special Educational Need. The school believes that children with exceptional ability in certain areas should also be supported and developed as they too have an individual need. The school makes use of workshops for able and gifted pupils to assist in this.
The local offer provides information on what services children, young people and their families can expect from a range of local agencies, including education, health and social care. Knowing what is out there gives you more choice and therefore more control over what support is right for your child. The North Yorkshire local offer can be found at this link
