Special Educational Needs and Disabilities

We at Dorothy Barley Infant School believe that each pupil has individual and unique needs.  However, some pupils require more support than others.  If these pupils are to achieve their full potential, we must recognise this and plan accordingly.  We acknowledge that a significant proportion of pupils will have special educational needs at some time in their school career.  Many of these pupils may require help throughout their time in school, whilst others may need a little extra support for a short period to help overcome more temporary needs.  Dorothy Barley Infant School aims to provide all pupils with strategies for dealing with their needs in a supportive environment, and to give them meaningful access to the National Curriculum.
