Such needs include:

  •          Cognition and learning
  •          Communication and Interaction
  •          Social emotional and mental health difficulties
  •          Sensory and/or physical needs

The areas of need listed above are as stated within the Special Educational Needs and Disability Code of Practice 0-25 (September 2014 – updated January 2015) which can be found by using the following link:

Special educational needs and disability code of practice: 0 to 25 years

We know that some pupils will have difficulties in more than one of these areas and we will always do our best to meet their needs.

All children in school have support through differentiation and quality first teaching strategies. This means that activities are planned according to the level the child or young person is working at. This can include a variety of adaptations including, changes to physical environment, use of resources, changes to teaching styles as well as level of adult support. 

 Allens Croft Primary School also have a 12 place (6 key stage one and 6 key stage two) Cognition and Learning Resource Base, which opened in September 2015.

 Admittance to the Cognition and Learning Resource Base is coordinated by SENAR (Special Educational Needs Assessment and Review) Team. Pupils must also have an Education Health Care Plan (EHCP) and have their primary area of need listed as Cognition and Learning
