Send Information Report

All children have the right to achieve their maximum academic and social potential.

At Van Gogh Primary we believe that all children have different learning needs rather than learning difficulties.Our objective is to identify and assess these needs and then ensure that learning is supported and differentiated to ensure children make excellent progress in learning.

We recognise that pupils learn at different rates and that there are many factors affecting achievement, including ability, emotional state, age and maturity. We believe that many pupils, at some time in their time at school, may experience difficulties which affect their learning, and we recognise that these may be long or short term.

If you have any additional questions or comments around Additional Educational Needs (AEN) or Special Educational Needs and/or Disabilities (SEND) then please feel to contact us
