Special Educational Needs and Disability
Sir Alexander Fleming Primary School is an inclusive school and all teachers:

We support children with a range of SEND needs including those with Speech, Language and Communication needs (SLCN) Social, Emotional and Mental Health (SEMH) ASD, Hearing and visual impairments (HI & VI), Physical difficulty (PD) Moderate learning difficulty (MLD) and those with a specific learning difficulty (SPLD) such as Dyslexia or Dyspraxia.
We have two Nurture spaces, ‘The Patch’ which supports our younger children in school and the ‘Den’ which is our dedicated space for Key stage Two children. The groups run throughout the day with small groups of learners with our Nurture staff. We also have our new internal SEND provision called the ‘Hive’ and our TLC room that is used to run small group interventions, in particular, SEMH.
All of our staff in school are there to support any children who have Special Educational Needs or Disabilities.
Sometimes in school we may use words or jargon that may be unfamiliar to you. This website gives a Glossary of SEND terms that you may hear us using. Glossary of SEND Terms | KIDS
