Inclusion & Special Education Needs
Together with the teachers and extra adults in school, we are here to help make a positive difference for those children who most need it. We aim to work in partnership with parents, families, outside agencies, feeder pre-schools, Children Centres and secondary schools.
We offer a range of interventions and ways of supporting learning; it is important that we identify your child’s needs and provide support for them to learn, feel good about themselves and find ways of achieving success.
If you have any concerns about your child’s needs in communication and interaction, learning, social, emotional or mental health and/or physical/sensory areas then ask to have a chat with the class teacher. However, at any time please feel free to come and talk with either Ms Ford or Mrs Willshire – you are welcome to call into the office or phone to arrange a time to meet with us.
How We Work:We follow the national Code of Practice for SEN and Disability (2014)
Where a child has been identified as needing SEN Support we will make sure we can take positive steps to remove barriers to learning. We will follow a 4-step cycle of ‘assess, plan, do, review’ to revisit and review what we are doing to ensure the child makes good progress and achieves good outcomes.
Statement/Education Health Care Plan
For a small percentage of children they will have a statement of SEN or an Education Health Care Plan issued by the Local Authority. Their needs must first be assessed through a statutory assessment.
Schools and parents can request this if the child’s needs meet the criteria set by the Local Authority.
At each stage there will be shared conversations with parents/carers. We will work together.
All children with a Special Educational Need will have a Pupil Passport. This will be shared with you at each Parent Consultation meeting. It will look like this:
