How will the school staff support my child?
Class teachers plan lessons which are differentiated to meet the needs of all children in their class. They will organise the class into small groups in order to focus the teaching and learning potential. Groups may be supported by a key adult, either the class teacher or learning support assistant, where appropriate, to foster effective, independent learning.
Class teachers may liaise with the SENCO for additional advice or support.
If school and parents agree that further advice is needed, a referral will be made to a specific outside agency such as the Educational Psychologist, Speech Therapist or Specific Learning Difficulties Advisory Teacher. A referral will not be made without parental permission.
The SEND Governor works closely with the school to help monitor provision. The SENCO and SEND Governor meet regularly to enable this process.
SEND provision, including interventions, is recorded on a Whole School Provision Map. Progress is monitored closely to measure the impact of interventions.
