At Greenland Community Primary School, we are committed to ensuring all children receive a holistic educational experience to enable them to achieve their potential. The wellbeing of our children is at the heart of our ethos and vision and shared by all our committed team. We believe in positive intervention, removing barriers to learning, raising expectations and levels of achievement and working in partnership with other agencies in order to provide a positive educational experience for all our pupils including those with a special educational need or disability.
Our school welcomes all children and values them as individuals, treating them equally and with respect. We believe that all children have the right to have their own particular needs recognised and addressed in order to achieve success. We believe that all teachers are teachers of children with SEN and it is therefore a whole school responsibility to ensure that these children’s needs are addressed.
At Greenland Community Primary School, we ensure that all pupils, regardless of their specific needs make the best possible progress.
