What support do we provide?

All children access quality first teaching which is differentiated to meet the needs of individual learners. Children identified as having special educational needs access a range of interventions to support with both academic and social and emotional development. Children work towards targets on personalised Learning Plans which are reviewed termly.

Whole class visual timetables are displayed in all classrooms and some children access individual visual timetables. Some children access additional provisions and resources such as workstation, ear defenders, fiddlers, learning breaks and working towards charts depending on their individual needs.

Where appropriate, support is sought from a wide range of outside agencies including: Educational Psychologist, Community Paediatrician, Occupational Therapy, Physiotherapy, Sleep Solutions, Specialist Support Service, Target Autism.

How do children access the support?

Progress data is reviewed termly to identify children working significantly below Age Related Expectations (ARE).  Teachers can refer children using the inclusion referral form. The referral will be discussed at weekly inclusion meeting and next steps identified. Parents may contact the SENCo directly via the main reception to discuss concerns they have regarding their child’s learning and development.
