All children have special needs.  All children are different. All children need special care and support to help them fulfil their potential.

At the New Forest Small School we also have a ‘special needs’ inclusion policy, whilst ensuring that we retain a good balance of children. Specifically tailored educational programmes and IEP’s, made in consultation with the parents, are offered that will stretch the more gifted child, support those for whom English is a second language and give the necessary extra support to children with learning challenges, Educational Statements / EHCP’s. 

The school offers ongoing pastoral support to every pupil as part of its philosophy/curriculum well as extra curricular support in maths / english / science and counselling on site. These sessions are individually charged.

Where other educational assessments/support are needed parents will need to fund this.
