Special Education Needs and Disability

We at Bickershaw C.E. Primary School are committed to making our best endeavours to meet the special educational needs of pupils and ensuring that they achieve the best possible educational and other outcomes. It is our aim to be an inclusive school and to put into place the practice, in all aspects of our work that ensures that all learners are given equality of opportunity and treated fairly. We want to promote and achieve high standards for all by providing high quality teaching and learning. We will treat learners as individuals and provide differentiated teaching and learning to take account of their individual and special needs e.g. specific learning differences such as dyslexia, dyspraxia; sensory difficulties – hearing, visual; moderate learning difficulties, disabilities and social, emotional, and mental health difficulties.
