Introduction

What services are provided? * Lunchtime club For four days a week, Fairfield has a lunchtime nurture group. This is run by two experienced teaching assistants and is very popular. Children can join this group for two days a week or for all four days. Some children join the lunchtime club because they can get a little overwhelmed by the hall others join in order to have an opportunity to develop their social skills and to experience a shared mealtime in a family type environment. Some join because they are not confident when talking in a group or whole class setting and this gives them an opportunity to gain confidence when talking to others. The children lay a table together; eat off china plates rather than the plastic trays used in the hall and serve each other from serving dishes. ...read more.

The School Health Service is there to help parents and children achieve this and are headed by a Consultant Community Paediatrician. This is provided every day. All schools have a named school nurse and doctor. The school nurse is responsible for promoting good health in school children and she carries out a number of routine health checks, e.g. height, weight, hearing, etc. She works closely with school doctors, health visitors, teachers and other professionals concerned with children. * Pastoral care During school hours, the Headteacher and staff assume responsibility for the well-being of pupils at Fairfield. They ask for the cooperation of parents in order to help them discharge this duty efficiently. Pupils spend the majority of time at school with their class teacher. He or she will get to know the children well. ...read more.

Conclusion

* Special educational needs They recognise that each individual child will learn at a different rate and they ensure that they meet the needs of all these differing abilities in our planning. Fairfield is committed to the early identification of needs and to prompt provision as appropriate. Some children experiencing learning difficulties will require their own special programme of study to enable them to progress. Other forms of support may include additional individual help from a teaching assistant or small-group work usually within the classroom. In all instances, they expect to liaise closely with parents. In cases of specific or long-term difficulty, they may call upon the expertise of advisory teachers and educational psychologists and other professionals, as appropriate, working within the Local Education Authority. The Governing Body and the Headteacher have overall responsibility for our SEN provision and our Special Needs Coordinator (SENCO) manages the day-to-day programme. ...read more.
