We believe that it is essential that opportunities are provided for parents and young people to work with all agencies in a holistic approach so we can continually assess and review progress of pupils with SEND. As a result we carefully monitor and review the quality of provision we offer to all pupils. We do this by regularly reviewing pupil progress, revising One Page Profiles, provision maps, interventions and pupil support. All pupils with EHCP will have a one page profile that will set short and long term targets. Some children at SBS+ level may also require a one page profile. These will be shared and agreed with parents and shared with pupils. These will be reviewed each term and updated accordingly. Where a child has an EHCP an annual review will take place within school. The SENCo will lead this review and liaise with appropriate professionals and invite accordingly. The SENCo will liaise with parents/ carers so that a suitable time and date can be arranged before formal invitations are sent. Long term targets will be identified for children with EHCP by the local authority. Annual targets will then be planned accordingly at reviews. We ask for pupil perceptions where appropriate to help us to improve the quality of practice we provide at our school. We have an SEN Governor, Mrs Christine Mosley, who supports the SENCo to monitor the attainment and progress of SEN pupils.
Raising a concern regarding SEND.
The success of our pupils relies heavily on the strong links between school staff, governors, pupils, parents/carers and other professionals. We continually develop our practice to improve outcomes for our pupils and welcome suggestions from these groups to enhance our provision.
If you would like to make any comments or compliments on our procedures and policies please contact Mrs Joanna O'Neill (SENCO) or Mrs Head (Headteacher) via the school office on 01473 741305. Similarly, if you wish to raise concerns about your child with SEN please do not hesitate to contact us using the same information above or speak to their class teacher directly.
We aim to make appropriate arrangements for supporting all children and young people in moving between phrases of education and in preparing for adulthood. We aim to work with specialists and other agencies to access specialist support for pupils and parents. Alongside the local authority services we are fortunate to have access in school to a family support worker and speech and language therapist. We have experience of working with other agencies and settings to support pupils with difficult transitions and plan appropriate transition plans accordingly. We visit pre-school providers where necessary to support smooth transition into our setting. Furthermore we provide support for when our children move to Junior school. Home visits are arranged for all children starting in our Nursery by 2 members of staff. Some pupils will have the opportunity to access a Nurture group and breakfast club within school (subject to availability and level of need). All children starting within Reception will receive a welcome pack. We understand that transitions into a new setting can be both difficult for the pupil and parents and offer opportunities for new prospective parents to meet with staff and visit the school. We welcome any prospective parents to visit the school, which can be made through contacting the school office.
