Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND)

When a pupil is identified as having a SEN they will be entered onto our SEN Register, this ensures their additional provision can be monitored and reviewed regularly. Along with monitoring provision and tracking pupils progress, we support Class Teachers to ensure that strategies are in place to enable these pupils to progress and reach their full potential.  Sometimes it is necessary to involve specialist help in either identifying or supporting pupils, whose need, despite the consistent and thorough support offered by the school, continue to make little or no progress over a sustained period of time.  

Ms Pettitt (Nurture Lead)

We liaise with outside agencies and talk about children’s learning needs and how we can best support pupils in school.  Support could be either by introducing effective teaching approaches specific to the level and area of identified need, appropriate equipment, strategies and interventions.  Throughout all of these processes we work with and support parents of pupils with SEN, to ensure that they are aware of targeted provisions and support offered by the school, the work of external agencies involved with their child, and where necessary deciding on the next steps that we will take together, to ensure that their child makes great progress.
