A number of pupils will not make as much progress for their age as they need to. Therefore, they need some extra help for a set period of time. There are also pupils who have a specific learning or emotional need. The different kinds of special needs at Nansen Primary School are described here:
Communication and interaction
How your child talks to, listens, responds, plays with and learns with other children and adults.
Cognition and learning
How your child thinks, learns and understands the world.
Children may have a specific learning difficulty such as:
Social, emotional and mental health difficulties
How your child shows their feelings, negotiates and solves problems in different situations and how they handle changes in routine.
Sensory and/or physical needs
How your child responds to their environment and learning using their senses and fine/gross motor skills.
Children may also have a disability such as:
- Physical disability
- Visual impairment
- Hearing impairment
- Multi-sensory impairment (Both visual and hearing)
