Special Educational Needs and Disability (SEND)
Here at Shears Green Infant School we value the abilities and achievements of all children. We truly believe that each and every child can achieve regardless of any additional needs. We endeavour to provide the best learning conditions for each pupil, promoting development in understanding and social maturity alongside their peers wherever possible.
Special Education Needs are identified early and the school works closely to plan a curriculum to meet the children’s needs. We work in partnership with our children, parents, carers, specialists and governors. The school values the abilities and achievements of all its pupils and celebrates small steps progress.
All children, regardless of additional educational needs, are fully included in all school activities.

Family Support Worker
We have a family support worker on our staff - Mrs Claire Cash. It is her role to support pupils who may have barriers to learning by working closely with parents to help overcome difficulties. These pupils could be lacking in confidence, poor attenders, have suffered from a bereavement or upset at home and a boost of extra support and encouragement can sometimes make all the difference to them.
Who can I contact for further information?
In the first instance parents/carers are encouraged to talk to their child’s class teacher.
Further information and support can be gained from the Inclusion Manager - Mrs Clare Holder.
