REACH for the stars and beyond. Together, with God's love, we can dream, believe and achieve

Welcome to Battyeford CE (VC) Primary

"Do everything without grumbling or arguing... then you shine among them like stars in the sky!' (Philippians 2: 14-15).

Supporting Pupils with Special Educational Needs

The SEN & Inclusion


We are committed to being a fully inclusive school we provide an environment where all children are valued and offered the best education possible, regardless of race, age, gender, disability or ability. We believe that all children are special and have different needs.  We aim to provide for these needs effectively, as a natural part of the planned life in the school, by offering a broad and well-balanced education.

Supporting Pupils with Additional Needs

Supporting Families within the School Community


As a school, we believe that supporting families through difficult times is vital to the child’s health, mental wellbeing and success at school. All staff are here for you and your child at times when you may require extra support to help them in the following areas:

  • The child's developmental needs;
  • The parents' or caregivers' capacity to respond appropriately to those needs; and
  • The wider family and environmental factors.


Senior Leaders will work alongside family members to identify needs and target appropriate support. This could be either short or long term intervention work from a range of outside agencies. Any parents who are experiencing family difficulties are welcome to come and share their concerns with an appropriate member of staff.


Early Help Support is a tool used by staff to:

· help in the early identification of needs;

· lead to co-ordinated provision of services;

· promote information sharing and avoid the duplication of assessments;

· reduce the need for children and their families to re-tell their story to different practitioners.
