At Abbey CofE Infant School and Nursery we want everyone to love, laugh and learn.  We want every child to reach their full potential academically, spiritually, socially, morally, physically and emotionally.


Every child is unique and we strive to support all children to enable them to achieve their best.  Many steps are taken to support our pupils on their learning journey.


Quality first teaching for all is essential; however for some children there are occasions when additional support is required.


A child is considered to have special educational needs if he or she has a learning difficulty which needs special education provision.


A child with a learning difficulty finds it more difficult to learn than the majority of other children the same age.  Or they might have a disability which hinders them from making use of resources and facilities that are generally provided for others.


We have a dedicated team who support children by providing the extra support they need so they can access and enjoy the full school curriculum.  We want every child to have the knowledge they need to succeed in life.


Information about how we support pupils with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND) can be found in our policy for SEND and our SEND Information Report.  Both of these can be found below.


If you have any questions or are worried about the progress your child is making then please talk to your child's class teacher or our Special Educational Needs Coordinator (SENCo), Miss Boulstridge.


Together we can make a real difference. 

Elm Resource Provision


We are excited to be able to provide this provision for the children of Warwickshire with the support of the Local Authority.


Elm Class is a Warwickshire Resource Provision based within Abbey CofE Infant School which allows children to attend mainstream school, whilst accessing specialist provision. Elm meets the needs of children with communication and interaction (C&I) needs including autistic spectrum conditions (ASC) and speech, language and communication needs (SLCN).  Children in this provision will all have an Education, Health and Care plan and placement is agreed by the Local Authority Provision Panel.
