SEND Information

 

Inclusion for all is at the heart of everything we do at Coxhoe Primary School. We serve a vibrant and diverse community, rich with different cultures, languages and different pupils with a varying range of academic, social, emotional, physical and sensory needs. We embrace the fact that every child is different. Therefore, we make every effort to meet the needs of any child, regardless of aptitude, ability or special need.

 

Our SEND Report sets out how we meet the needs of pupils with special educational needs, as set out by our SEND Policy. In this document, you should find answers to any questions that you may have about SEND at Coxhoe Primary School.

 

Our SEND Team would love to hear from you with any queries or feedback you might have.

 October is ADHD Awareness Month 2019

Free ADHD screening to be launched in South Africa

ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder) is a very common disorder which affects children and adults. It has for many years been recognised as a childhood issue that affects focus, self-control and many other important skills. However, it has only recently been recognised as an adult problem too. The cause is an imbalance in the brains anatomy and its wiring.

 

The ADHD Foundation has lots of useful information on supporting those with ADHD and many helpful links.

We recently came across this helpful picture which we wanted to share here with you. While it only goes a small way in helping us understand the complex and varied nature of autism, it does give us things to consider as we continue to support and promote those with ASD.
