Special Educational Needs (SEN) Information Report
Identifying young people with SEN
Children are assessed on entry, observed and monitored and carefully in each term of schooling. Teachers meet to discuss the progress of pupils, including any concerns, formally once a term. However, where a there is a cause for concern, discussions will take place between the class teacher and the SENCO team. Parents may be consulted in a variety of ways: at Parent Evenings, informal discussions and specific meetings following targeted assessments.
The school uses specialist provision from SEND Supported. A specialist teacher from this service visits regularly to assist in making assessments, advising the school on strategies and interventions and monitoring the progress of children on the SEN register. Additionally the specialist teacher may also meet with parents to discuss the results of assessments and the provision the school may make as a result.
The Educational Psychologist may also be involved in the assessment of children. She will make observations, monitors the progress of children on the SEN register and attends EHCP reviews where appropriate.
Arrangements for consulting young people with SEN
Children are fully involved in discussions about their learning and contribute to their Personalised Learning Plans. They are invited to attend and contribute to their EHCP reviews. The school is moving towards using time limited Intervention Plans and pupils will be asked to help assess how successful their plan has been. Our marking policy ensures children are given time to reflect on their learning and to respond to comments and advice.

The approach to teaching children with SEN
Adaptions to the curriculum and Learning Environment
Where a child has specific needs, they may require an individually tailored timetable to ensure they are able to fully access and engage in the learning process. Some children may require a individualised work 'space' which will be in a dedicated area in the classroom. We also provide 'safe nurturing spaces' throughout school for children to access.

Involvement of Outside Agencies
If a parent has a concern or complaint, in the first instance they would speak to the class teacher. If matters are not resolved then they can speak to The Head Teacher and SENCO. The next step would then be to speak to our Chair of Governors, who can be contacted via the school office.
