At Shrivenham Primary School we believe and value each of our children as unique and individual, we believe that they all flourish in their own time with the right support and nurture. Children who are identified to have additional needs are supported in order to allow them to reach their full potential.




'Leaders identify pupils who have special educational needs and/or disabilities and make sure that adaptations help them to learn the same curriculum as their classmates.'
