We understand all children learn and develop in different ways and at different speeds. Teachers and teaching assistants recognise this and use different teaching styles, resources and plan different levels of work in the classroom to cater for the various ways children learn.
How will school support my child?
Class teachers are responsible for planning, checking and overseeing the work for each child with SEND in their class. It is their responsibility to make sure children with SEND make progress in their class, as it is for every other child.
Teaching Assistants (TAs) may also provide additional support to your child. This can be in a range of different ways, including support within the classroom and small group or individual work out of the classroom. This is overseen and monitored by the class teacher. The support will relate to targets and outcomes your child is working towards.
The SENCO (Special Educational Needs Co-ordinator), Miss K Bradley, is responsible for overseeing all SEN support across school; for monitoring and evaluating the impact of this and for sharing this information with governors.
Working with parents, carers and families
We believe that working closely with parents, carers and families is crucial to successful support for children with SEND. We do this in the following ways:
We will ensure you are kept up to date with everything through informal discussions, meetings, letters and phone calls.
Your child’s SEN Support Plan will include details of any additional support they are receiving. There is an opportunity for families to discuss and review this during our termly parents evenings.
The SENCO (Miss K Bradley) is available in school to discuss support in more detail. Please contact the school office to make an appointment.
Involvement of school governors
Governors are updated during termly meetings and through Head Teacher reports about SEND provision, spending and progress of children (individual children are not identified in order to maintain confidentiality)
If you would like to discuss your SEND requirements in detail please contact the school to arrange an appointment.
