How will school staff support my child?
- If the class teacher identifies that your child is not making the expected progress in a particular area, they will provide additional support. Your child will continue to be educated in the classroom to ensure they receive high quality education. The additional support can be through individual support in the classroom, small group work or intervention groups (e.g. early morning maths).
- Your child's learning will be monitored closely by the class teacher and they will be placed on a monitoring register. Your child's progress will be assessed and if the necessary improvement has been made the additional support will cease.
- If your child does not make the necessary progress with the additional support, they may be placed on the SEND register following conversations with you.
- They will have a 'Pupil Support Plan' drawn up by the class teacher in consultation with you, your child and the SENCo. The Plan will focus on your child's prime areas of need. It will contain targets and outline the strategies and resources that will be used to help your child achieve them through the Assess, Plan, Do, Review Process . The Plan will be reviewed and shared with you and your child at least three times a year.
- Children with SEND are supported by Teaching Assistants (TAs), additional resources, (such as specialist equipment and IT programmes) and/or interventions from external
- Parents’ Evenings/Pupil Plan reviews are held termly where you are informed of any support received and given feedback about the progress your child has made. Teachers also regularly meet with parents at other times where necessary and are available to answer any questions you may have.
- Children who have an Education, Health Care Plans (EHCP) receive the necessary provision matched to their identified needs. The EHCP is reviewed annually with you, the SENCo, class teacher and other professional input.
- Additional support is available, whenever necessary, for pupils who are vulnerable, and for those that experience a range of emotional, social and behavioural difficulties. This can be through for example, our buddying system, friendship groups, Nurture groups or Bubble Time sessions.
