Special Education Needs and Disability

SEND at Tibshelf Infant and Nursery School

Tibshelf Infant & Nursery School is a fully inclusive school and we take pride in our provision for pupils with additional needs and disabilities. We implement a ‘whole school approach’ to special educational needs and disability which involves all staff adhering to a model of good practice. All the staff of the school are committed to identifying and providing for the needs of all children in an inclusive environment. We believe in early intervention so when we identify a child experiencing a difficulty we work closely with parents/carers to offer support.

The ‘Local Offer’ should provide clear information about support and opportunities that are available.
