How We Support Your Child









How We Support Your Child

Who will Plan and Deliver Support for my child?

  • Your child’s class teacher will plan the work that your child undertakes.  This may also be done in partnership with the year group Teaching Assistant if they are to be involved in delivering support for your child.  We try to ensure that SEN pupils experience support in small groups from both the class teacher and Teaching Assistants.
  • Individual support for specific programmes (such as physiotherapy) will be delivered by a teaching assistant.
  • For children requiring Specialist Speech and Language support this will be undertaken by one of the specialist Speech and Language Teaching Assistants, Nicky Kirk in KS1 and Alison Cooper-Moore in KS2.  Both Nicky and Alison have been trained in delivering Speech and Language programmes by the Speech and Language Therapy Services team and have had Elklan training.
  • Support given will be by assessing need, planning support, giving that support and then reviewing the impact of that support.

Who will Oversee the Support for my child?

  • The SENCo and SENCo Assistant oversees the targets set on Support Plans. Support Plans are written each term and are shared with parents and children.
  • The SENCo and the Head teacher/Deputy Head teacher meet regularly to discuss your child’s progress and the intervention that is planned by the class teacher.
  • The Headteacher and Senior Leadership Team regularly monitor provision in classrooms by observations, looking at children’s work, talking to children and monitoring progress.

What about Additional Activities/ Trips etc?

  • Before a trip is undertaken a plan is drawn up to identify additional risks etc.  If it is felt that your child will need to receive additional support for the trip then this will be put into place.
  • Similarly, when additional activities are planned for, such as clubs, if it has been identified that your child will need additional support to participate, then additional resources will be allocated wherever reasonably possible.
