Special Educational Needs

At the heart of the work of every class is a continuous cycle of planning, teaching and assessment which takes account of the wide range of abilities, aptitudes and interests of the children. The majority of children will learn and progress within these arrangements. Where overall attainments and achievement in specific subjects fall significantly outside the expected range, pupils may have a Special Educational Need (SEN).

Children have a learning difficulty if they:

  • have a significantly greater difficulty in learning than the majority of children of the same age
  • have a disability which prevents or hinders them from making use of educational facilities of a kind generally provided for children of the same age

This may relate to impairments in communication and interaction, cognition and learning, behavioural, emotional and social development, or sensory or physical needs. For children who have a specific learning difficulty or a disability, our Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND) policy outlines the educational support we provide. This is referred to as our ‘SEND Offer’, detailed below. This provision provided alongside the Shropshire local offer.

At St George’s Junior School, we provide a broad and balanced curriculum for all pupils:

  • creating suitable learning challenges
  • responding to the diversity of individual pupils’ learning needs
  • conquering barriers to learning.

Our SEN policy can be found on our Policies page

Able Gifted and Talented

We seek to provide opportunities for all children to succeed and be challenged through the curriculum and in after school activities. If children excel in out of school activities these successes are celebrated in school assemblies. More able children are given opportunities to extend their skills through a range of methods. We seek to extend and challenge children in a variety of ways that serve to broaden their knowledge, understanding and skills and develop further the abilities they show.
