How will I know that the school will support my child?

 (Updated September 2018)

Support or interventions at school might include adapting the curriculum, providing additional learning resources within the classroom or receiving support or a planned intervention, either on an individual basis or as part of a small group. Some support may take place within the classroom to enable the child to access the lesson that is being taught. Planned intervention groups usually require children to be withdrawn from the classroom for between 10 minutes and an hour (depending on the intervention) for a specific period of time, to boost the children’s learning and to try to close the gap between their level of achievement and that of their peers.

When the school identifies the need for additional support to enable a pupil to make expected progress the parents/carers will be informed by the class teacher and if appropriate invited to a meeting at the school with the SENCO to draw up a plan of support (Additional Support Plan).

The SENCO will support the class teachers and teaching assistants to meet the needs of an individual learner.

Governors monitor the effectiveness of the provision in place for pupils identified with SEND and they will receive regular reports from the SENCO on the progress of pupils with SEND.
