Special Educational Needs and Disability at the Grove


The Grove Primary School is a mainstream school. We have a higher than average proportion of children within mainstream with special educational needs. At The Grove Primary School we strive to ensure that all children achieve their potential personally, socially, emotionally and academically in all areas of the curriculum. We also have our Nurture room – Chameleon which is used by many children who need additional support and intervention. We place the upmost importance on being an inclusive school and ensure all reasonable adjustments are made for children with SEND to enable them to engage in all aspects of our knowledge curriculum.

We have recently added a musical sensory area to our playground for all children to access. This is an inclusive area that supports Social Emotional and Mental health and Wellbeing for our children. Outdoor classroom areas and the development of our forest schools also encourages inclusivity and considers how all of our children learn in different ways. We believe that by giving our children a wide range of learning tools, all children can be included.

For more information on what our SEND offer here at the Grove looks like, please access our Information report below.

  • help taking part in class activities

  • extra encouragement in their learning, eg to ask questions or to try something they find difficult

  • help communicating with other children

  • support with physical or personal care difficulties, eg eating, getting around school safely or using the toilet
