Special Education Needs and Disabilities

Education and support for our pupils is key to all of us.

Sometimes children need a little extra help to meet their needs.

At Castle View we have a very experienced team, supported by our Special Educational Needs and Disabilities Coordinator; Mrs Sorrell. 

We employ a graduated response to pupil’s needs which ensures we assess, plan, do and review. Termly reviews of all pupils take place to ensure all children are making progress and achieving.

Mrs Sorrell’s role is to work alongside parents, pupils and staff to ensure that any outside agency support is gained and advice is given to meet the needs of the pupils, at the earliest opportunity.

As a Derbyshire school we are fully supported by a wealth of outside agencies that work closely with the school to support any child with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities. If you would like to find out more about the services and agencies that are available to us and yourselves please click here to find out about the Derbyshire SEN local offer.
