Special Educational Needs Home Learning Support

On this page, our SENCO, Mrs Liddiard will be adding items for those who may want some additional support for their children with Special Educational Needs, for example Speech and Language or motor skills, as well as emotional needs activities. We want to ensure that the children are supported as best as possible during this tricky time. 

We suggest that the summary chart of references, tips and website support for each area of need is a good place to start. 

Each section will have different areas identified with different activities to download. 

Please email Mrs Liddiard on senco@churchfields.wilts.sch.uk if you feel something could be added that would be beneficial. 

The Department of Education have produced a list of online educational resources to help children learn at home there is a specific section dedicated to SEND.
