Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND)
We work hard to be an inclusive school, giving consideration to the needs of each pupils' individual starting point, so they can 'be the best they can be'.
Our SEND and other policies can be found here.
Special educational provision covers a wide range of need including sensory impairment, physical disability, communication, learning, emotional and behavioural difficulties, as well as children with exceptional ability.
A significant number of children may need special educational provision at some time during their school lives which calls for special educational provision to be made for them. For some children, the provision may last for only a short period of time. However, for other children the provision may last longer.
This report includes what we do at Bilton Infant School as part of our SEND offer.
School is unable to provide a diagnosis of any pupil. However, we work in partnership with a number of additional agencies who are qualified to do so.
Further information can be found on Warwickshire's Local Offer (below).

Developmental co-ordination disorder (DCD or dyspraxia)
Developmental co-ordination disorder (DCD), also known as dyspraxia, is a condition affecting physical co-ordination. It causes a child to perform less well than expected in daily activities for their age, and appear to move clumsily.
Dyslexia is a common learning difficulty that can cause problems with reading, writing and spelling.
It's a specific learning difficulty, which means it causes problems with certain abilities used for learning, such as reading and writing.
