Meeting our Children’s Needs

At Dean Field School we provide learning, which meets the needs of every child. Like most schools, we have a number of pupils who have additional educational needs. Such needs may include:

  • Learning difficulties
  • Physical difficulties
  • Medical conditions
  • Communication difficulties
  • Behavioural issues

We have a dedicated team of learning mentors, support assistants and other adults who, alongside class teachers, will provide support for those children who have additional educational needs.

To ensure that children’s individual needs are met and the necessary support is given, we liaise with a range of agencies such as the speech & language therapy service, occupational therapy, the ASD team and the community pediatric team.
