Special Educational Needs


Special Educational Needs (SEN) means that a child is facing specific challenges with areas of school life at the moment.

It may be that the child is finding learning difficult and needs to work at a different pace. It may be that the child has an emotional or social issue, a behavioural issue or a physical disability. Sometimes these difficulties only last for a short time and some continue through a child’s school life.

How do we help at Kimberley?

Helping your child to make progress is a partnership between home and school. The government has given schools clear guidelines on how help is given – the document is called the SEN code of practice.

Parents should always inform school of any known, physical, emotional or behavioural difficulties before the child enters school, so the appropriate support can be agreed and arranged.
