Every child is unique with a range of strengths and aspects of learning which they find more challenging.  Some children have difficulties or disabilities that make it hader for him or her to learn than most other children or young people of about the same age. This is distinct from a child who may have fallen behind a little but has no specific difficulties and needs to catch up.  

At West Hoathly CE Primary School we want all our children to make good progress and attain as highly as possible.

Where children are identified as having a special educational need or disability we are committed to exercising our "best endeavours" to help them learn and make progress providing additional support, resources or teaching.  This may be in a variety of forms.  

Sometimes, where necessary, we gain support and opportunities beyond the school where specialist intervention or advice is necessary.  The documents and links below provide further details of the school's, locality (group of schools) and county provision.
