We are a child and family centred school, so you can expect to be consulted at each step of the way.
When we assess SEN, we will discuss with you to find out if the same is happening at home and school. We will then take this in to account and work with you so that we are all helping your child in the same way to make sure they make progress.
Once it has been agreed that a child has additional needs, you will be informed and they will be placed on the Special Educational Needs Register under the category of SEN Support. They may receive extra support or intervention if this is felt appropriate.
Your child will receive 3 reviews each year with the class teacher, whilst they are on the SEN register.
If they continue to make slow progress or have ongoing problems, then the school may ask for advice from outside agencies.
A small number of children may go on to have an Education, Health and Care Plan (EHC) - these are for the most complex children that have significant and ongoing needs. If a child has an EHC plan, then they will also have an additional annual review and the plan can stay with them up to the age of 25 if it is deemed necessary. These children will also receive a review in the October of Year 6 to discuss transition to an appropriate secondary school.
