Special Educational Needs

Support for children with special needs.


All children are offered a broad and balance curriculum through the delivery of the Foundation and National Curriculum.  Some children may have difficulties with learning and others may have difficulties with social and emotional development or behaviour. 


Early identification is the key to later success.  An individual education programme (IEP) is drawn up and agreed with the parents and we work in partnership to help each child.  A learning support assistant or specialist from an outside agency may work with the child when deemed necessary.

Marshgate has a member of staff called a SENCo who works specifically to organise the help and support for children with special educational needs.  Mrs Jerwood is currently the SENCo at Marshgate and works on Tuesday to Thursday.


You can contact Mrs Jerwood directly on or leave a message with the school office.
