If children are identified as having a special need, the SENDCo, class teacher and parents or carers will work together to ensure that they receive a personalised plan that states very clearly the needs of the child and the appropriate support/provision that the school will put into place, to ensure the needs are met.
These plans are reviewed at least half termly by the Class Teacher and Teaching Assistant and shared with parents and carers where contributions are welcomed.
The SENDCo has access to a range of outside agencies (educational psychology, education welfare, school health, social services, speech and language therapy, etc), which are used as and when appropriate to support and offer advice on how best to support individual pupils and families.
The majority of children with special education needs or disability will have their needs met by the school through Quality First Teaching alongside carefully planned intervention and support.
The school has ramps and accessible toileting facilities and aims to make arrangements for specific needs as required.
Senior staff routinely monitor the progress of all children to identify those at risk of underachievement. We recognise that needs are sometimes affected by other factors which are not educational but nevertheless impact on learning. These are identified as far as possible and addressed appropriately using additional processes and other strategies.
