Special Educational Needs

Our ethos

At Marton, we sow the seeds of education for all children, no matter their needs or abilities, and nurture the development of all our pupils so they can grow to lead confident, independent and healthy lives within a community. 

 

Early understanding and identification is crucial for children with a special need or disability. Staff, in partnership with parents, pupils and where needed, outside agencies, monitor, assess, plan and provide the best education possible for each individual child.

At Marton & District Primary School, we pride ourselves on our inclusive, community-focused environment where all of our children are treated with respect and integrity. Children build up trusted relationships with staff and peers and are then encouraged to become independent learners and thinkers. Children with a special need or disability are treated in the same way and staff work hard to ensure that all children are included in all aspects of school life.

This page is here to support parents and children in understanding Marton's Local offer. It also offers information on some types of special needs that you, as parents and carers, have asked for support on, and suggests other local agencies who can offer more support.

What is a special need?

A child has special educational needs if they have a learning problem or disability that make it more difficult for them to learn than most children their age. They may have problems with schoolwork, communication or behaviour.

'Special educational needs' is a legal definition and refers to children with learning problems or disabilities that make it harder for them to learn than most children the same age.
