What does this mean for the children?
- All children have access to a broad and rich curriculum which meets individual needs.
- All children will be monitored and assessed as part of our differentiated curriculum and planning process. Pupil progress meetings are held regularly.
- If a child is deemed to have a significant learning difficulty, a graduated approach will be put into place.
- All children will have their own targets to work towards.
- Identified children are provided with interventions which match their individual needs.
- We work in partnership with the child, parents/carers and other agencies to ensure children receive the support which matches their individual needs.
This can take many forms such as:
- Quality first teaching
- The school will follow a graduated approach to your child’s learning. It will follow the sequence of Assess, Plan, Do, Review.
- Planning, making, adapting or providing specific materials, equipment or resources by the class teacher and/ or LSA
- Liaising with other professionals
- Targeted support and intervention
- Pupil voice
- Learning Mentor sessions
- Adapted timetables
- Encouraging children to ask questions, try new things, self-select equipment and make decisions about what might help them in their independence
- Support emotional needs
- Setting up and supporting behaviour support plans
- Supporting with physical needs or personal care
- Supporting with transition
- Staff training
How do I know about my child’s progress?
We recognise that working in partnership with parents/carers leads to the best outcomes for all children. We have both informal and formal methods of communication.
- Open door policy
- Home/school partnership books
- Home learning tasks
- Parent/carer information sessions
- Talk and share
- Celebration Assemblies
- Annual Reports
- Visits from outside agencies
- EHCP reviews
- ASI/AIS meetings
- Individual Healthcare Plans
- If a child is placed on the SEND register parents/ carers will be informed.
- We will meet once a term to create and reviews outcomes for your child. This will be a person-centred ASI/AIS meeting (additional support and intervention)
- Parents and carers will be asked to fill out a view sheet to bring to the meeting. The child will create a one-page profile with their teacher which will be brought to the meeting.
- Please feel free to contact the class teacher in-between meetings, via the partnership book. These will be dealt with and passed on to the Inclusion Lead if needed.
- The ASI/AIS meetings are run by the class teacher.
- If your child has an EHC plan with have an annual review in addition.
