Additional Support Needs

There are 2 teachers to support children who have additional support needs.

Support is provided to individuals and groups of children within classes for a variety of reasons. It may be for a specific learning difficulty, a behavioural need, a medical need or for a child with particular abilities.

The Council has a policy of integrating children with Additional Support Needs into mainstream schools wherever possible and this is fully supported by Seafield. Where these children may have needs which the school cannot cater for within its current staffing and resources it can request additional advice, manpower, expertise and resources from the Authority through such bodies as the Educational Psychology Service. The school maintains close links and utilises the services of these and other supportive services.
