We are very proud and excited to let you know that we have official accreditation for Inclusive Dyslexia Friendly Status from Somerset County Council.
Parent Information: SEND School Information Report
All Somerset maintained schools have a similar approach to meeting the needs of pupils with Special Educational Needs or Disabilities (SEND). Schools are supported by the Local Authority to ensure that all pupils regardless of their specific needs make the best possible progress in school. All schools are supported to be as inclusive as possible.
At Milford Infants' School we recognise that all children are of equal value and deserve access to resources and opportunities to develop their full potential, to make a positive contribution and to enhance their self-esteem.
Milford Infants' is an inclusive school and we aim to meet the needs of all pupils including those with Special Educational Needs or Disabilities. At our school we support each child and their parents/ carers so they can achieve the best possible educational and developmental outcomes, preparing them effectively for their future. We believe in developing positive relationships between home and school and work hard to build and sustain these.
Our School SENCo is: Mrs Jill Taylor
Telephone number: 01935 457426 option 3 (working days: Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday)

Somerset Graduated Response Tool
Quality first teaching underpins all educational provision. It focuses on inclusive practice and breaks down barriers to learning. For the majority of children this can be achieved by identifying specific barriers, followed by personalisation and differentiation using strategies as identified in the Somerset Graduated Response Tool. The Somerset Graduated Response Tool breaks down SEN into four broad areas of need. This targets specific support for teachers to plan and for any interventions to take place. You can learn more about the Somerset Graduated Response at: https://www.somerset.gov.uk/children-families-and-education/the-local-offer/education/what-to-expect-from-education/
