Inclusion and Special Needs


Inclusion and Special Needs

Some children’s difficulties are identified before they begin school but most are recognised at some stage during their school career.

At Rosedale Primary School, we assess and monitor all pupils regularly. We often diagnose learning difficulties early in a child’s school career and with the help of parents, support staff in school and a variety of external supporting agencies, we seek to meet children’s needs.

We have a very thorough Inclusion Policy and comply completely with the SEN Code of Practice. The school has a strong reputation for its commitment to Inclusion, and has achieved the Doncaster Chartermark for Inclusion.

The School's Inclusion Manager is  Mrs. H Baker

Mrs T Jackson is our SEN admin assistant.

Rosedale Primary School is committed to an equality of opportunity for all who learn and work within it. Children’s needs must be identified and met as far as possible within the resources of the school, irrespective of gender, ability or ethnicity.

The school has an accessibility plan (required under the Disability Discrimination Act 1995) which ensures that children with disabilities are not discriminated against in any way. The school has extremely effective liaison with a range of external agencies in order to support children with special educational needs, including those with physical difficulties. A copy of the school's accessibility plan is available on request. The school does have facilities such as adapted toilets, wheelchair ramps and modified furniture to support children with disabilities and has a commitment to review this provision to meet the needs of any new admissions.

The school's inclusion and equality policies can be viewed in our policies sections.
