Special Educational Needs and Disability

This section of our website is to provide parents with key information about the inclusive practice within the Bythams Primary School. This includes areas such as special educational needs and how we support children with special educational needs within our school. We hope this information is useful, but please contact the class teacher, SENCo or Head teacher should you have any questions. 

What is a special educational need?

Some children have needs or disabilities that affect their ability to learn. For example:

  • behavioural/social (eg difficulty making friends)
  • reading and writing (eg dyslexia)
  • understanding things
  • concentrating (eg Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder)
  • physical needs or impairments
Who to talk to if your child has special educational needs

If you think your child may have special educational needs, contact the SENDCo who is  Kate Hardie.

Contact your local Liaise Service for impartial advice about special educational needs.
