Specific Needs and Outside Agencies

School staff regularly review all children’s progress and monitor children with concerns so that those children with ongoing concerns may be referred to the appropriate agency with the permission of parents. Where children have additional needs they will be supported in accessing the full curriculum. Individual risk assessments are carried out where appropriate to ensure the safety of children with additional needs. Where children’s needs are more complex and requires a high level of intervention and support the school may request an Education Health Care Needs Assessment (EHCNA) be completed by the Local Authority.
