At Shillingstone Primary School we treat every child as an individual.

How do we do this.........?


  • All the teachers and headteacher monitor the progress your child makes every term in Reading, Writing and Maths.
  • All children's progress is measured and monitored against the national average.
  • Teachers are continually changing their planning and teaching to meet the needs of all the individual learners in the class.
  • All children learn at a different pace and use a range of learning styles. 



  • Every child has a set of individual targets linked to writing and maths.
  • These targets are personal to your child and are continually monitored, reviewed and updated every term by each class teacher.
  • The personal targets are displayed in the front of all Literacy books and are used as a prompt for children during lessons.
  • Maths targets are displayed in every classroom.
  • All the children know their personal targets and understand that these targets help them to move their learning forwards.


Children have special educational needs if they have a learning difficulty which calls for special education provision to be made for them.  They have a learning difficulty if they;

  • find it more difficult to learn than the majority of children their own age
  • have a disability which stops them from making full use of the educational facilities provided for the children of the same age in school

Shillingstone CE VA Primary School has a SENCo and specialist SEN teacher called Mrs Sharon Proyer.  We also have a designated governor for SEND, called Sally White.
