Special Educational Needs

At Manor Field Infant School, we embrace the fact that every child is different, and, therefore, the educational needs of every child is different: this is certainly the case for children with Special Educational Needs.


SEND - Special Educational Needs and Disabilities

Manor Field Infant School adheres to the current SEN Code of Practice which states:


A child or young person has SEN 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 Miss Sheret and she is supported as deputy inclusion manager by Miss McOmish. Please feel free to come and make an appointment if you wish to discuss your child's additional needs.



At Manor Field Infant school, we use Nessy as a tool to help our children to read, write, spell and type.


Nessy has been making fun, educational software for children since 1999 and has developed a reputation for exceptional quality. Nessy offers the complete dyslexia aware solution with a suite of multisensory products aimed at making learning to read, write and spell fun.


 Nessy believes 'Learning happens when it's fun!'
