Special Educational Needs

Special Educational Needs and Disabilities 


At Manor Field Infant School, we embrace the fact that every child is unique!

Therefore, the educational needs of every child needs to be designed specifically for their individual needs...



Manor Field Infant School adheres to the current Special Educational Needs and Disabilities Code of Practice which states:


A child or young person has SEND if they have a learning difficulty or disability which calls for special educational provision to be made for him or her.


A child of compulsory school age or a young person has a learning difficulty or disability if he or she:

  • Has a significantly greater difficulty in learning than the majority of others of the same age, or

  • Has a disability which prevents or hinders him or her from making use of facilities of a kind generally provided for others of the same age in mainstream schools or mainstream post-16 institutions


Our school SENCO is Mrs Morris. Please feel free to come and make an appointment if you wish to discuss your child's additional needs.


What is THRIVE?


The Thrive Approach provides 1 to 1 or group sessions support, focusing on building relationships with the children to develop their knowledge, skills and tools to optimise social and emotional development.


Thrive not only benefits the children, but those working with them and the wider community.


Who are THRIVE sessions for? 


Thrive sessions are set up for children with social, emotional and behavioural difficulties which may include:


  • lack of self-esteem
  • withdrawn
  • unable to share and take turns
  • doesn't trust adults/peers
  • may lack in mannerism skills
  • disrupts other children in the classroom
  • has behavioural issues
  • language skills
  • struggle with the mainstream classroom environment


Entry into the sessions is carefully considered through a staged referral procedure and the use of a range of assessments over time.
