Hornchurch Academy Trust


Here at Shears Green Infant School we value the abilities and achievements of all children. We truly believe that each and every child can achieve regardless of any additional needs. We endeavour to provide the best learning conditions for each pupil, promoting development in understanding and social maturity alongside their peers wherever possible.

Special Education Needs are identified early and the school works closely to plan a curriculum to meet the children’s needs. We work in partnership with our children, parents, carers, specialists and governors. The school values the abilities and achievements of all its pupils and celebrates small steps of progress.

All children, regardless of additional educational needs, are fully included in all school activities. 

Who can I contact for further information? 

In the first instance parents/carers are encouraged to talk to their child’s class teacher.

Further information and support can be gained from the Inclusion Manager/SENCO - Mrs Clare Holder by calling 01474 566700 or by email; cholder@shears-green-infant.kent.sch.uk

Following this work, the Sycamore Trust have made available CPD training sessions for parents, carers and family members who are interested in understanding more about autism.  Please follow the link below for more details.
