At Sheep Dip Lane Primary School we believe that all children deserve a broad and balanced curriculum with exciting, motivating and rewarding real life experiences.

We have a specialised team in place to support children with additional education needs – Special Educational Needs and Disabilities Co-ordinator, Inclusion Manager and many highly trained Learning Support Assistants. All class teachers also have the responsibility of supporting children with additional needs in their classes.

In order for all children to achieve their full potential, we ensure that staff are trained in techniques and strategies including:

·        Play4Purpose

·        Star Time

·        Sensory Circuits

·        Rainbows

·        Thrive

·        Team Teach

We also have specialised areas aimed at providing nurture support and care for our children. 

We aim to work in partnership with our parents/carers, understanding that every child is an individual. It is therefore imperative that every child is supported on an individual basis with full consent and consultation with parents and carers. We also have strong, positive working relationships with external supporting agencies including: Behaviour Outreach Support Service, Speech and Language Therapists, Occupational Therapy, Physiotherapy, Children and Adult Mental Health Services, Educational Psychology, School Nursing Teams, Visual Impairment Teams, ASD Teams and Hearing Impairment Teams.

Within an inclusive learning environment, we offer specialised support and aim to nurture children and grow their gifts and minds for the future.
