Fairholme Primary School offers all our children opportunities to develop their full potential. We aim to go 'the extra mile' to support children who are having difficulties or who find some of their learning a challenge.
Our Special Educational Needs Co-Ordinator (SENCO) is Mrs R Kaura. If you have any concerns about your child's learning, it's always best to speak to your child's class teacher in the first instance. If you remain concerned, Mrs Kaura can be contacted by phoning the school on 020 8890 2584.
Mrs Kaura arranges additional provision for children with difficulties in the following areas:
Mrs Kaura is ably supported by a team of SEN Teaching Assistants. SEN TAs are assigned to support individual children and/or pairs or small groups. We also operate a system of ‘mentors’ for vulnerable children and have a Nurture Group, called 'Treasure Chest' that runs for a group of children in the afternoons. Children with medical needs are also well-supported and cared for in our schoool.
We work with an excellent play therapist, Jenny Haylock, who supports many of our children who are going through periods of crisis or change, and we are also fortunate to have Maeve Begley working with our school. Maeve supports families with home issues and parenting.
