How does the school know if children need extra help and what should I do if I think my child may have special educational needs?
SEN Register review:
Each term the school review all children on the register and update it accordingly, considering their category of SEND. This depends on the level of support that they receive.
During the year the school use a referral process for teachers to flag up any child that is having difficulties and where additional support has not impacted. After assessment and discussion with all stakeholders it may be that the school and home agree to the child being placed on the register.
Throughout the year the teachers review assessment data to identify additional provision that each child (SEN and non-SEN) needs to progress. This may also lead to a referral being made for further assessment from the appropriate outside agencies.
All actions within the school should be done after the teacher has liaised with parents to ensure effective communication between home and school takes place. Parents are also encouraged to talk to teachers about concerns they may have that may result in a referral to the Inclusion team/SENCo being made. ILPs/PMs are also send home termly for children on the register outlining the children’s next steps and the intervention in place to enable them to be achieved.
The class teacher, the Inclusion Leader/SENCo (Mrs L howard) and SLT are happy to talk through on the phone or in a meeting if required any concerns you may have with SEND.
