All children at Byron Wood Primary Academy are treated as individuals. We work with all our children and their families from their own unique starting point, building on their skills to enable them to fulfil their potential and make a positive contribution to society.

For Byron Wood, with its diverse population, therefore, getting to grips with what is a special need and what is not is an important debate. If we accept, however, that learning is the key to doing well at this school then we can try to highlight specifically those pupils with a learning difficulty or disability, which hinders their progress. Consequently, SEN  is about how and why some pupils access knowledge at a slower rate than their peers. Thus, in order to support progress, it requires a clear understanding of teaching and learning, thought and creativity to deliver the curriculum to those students. This is a particular challenge.
