How are the school's resources allocated to help my child?
- We ensure that all children who have Special Educational needs are met to the best of the school’s ability with the funds available.
- Our overall team of staff working across the school are part funded from the SEN budget and deliver programmes designed to meet groups of children’s needs. Each class has an allocated TA who is there to provide appropriate intervention and support for children who require additional support.
- The budget is allocated on a ‘needs basis’. The Children who have the most complex needs are given the most support often involving a TA.
HOW IS THE DECISION MADE ABOUT WHAT TYPE AND HOW MUCH SUPPORT MY CHILD WILL RECEIVE?
- The class teacher alongside the SENDCo will discuss the child’s needs and what support would be appropriate.
- Different children will require different levels of support in order to bridge the gap to achieve age expected levels.
- This will be through on-going discussions with parents.
HOW DO WE KNOW IF IT HAS HAD AN IMPACT?
- By reviewing children’s targets and ensuring they are being met.
- The child is making progress academically against national/age expected levels and the gap is narrowing – they are catching up to their peers or expected age levels.
- Verbal feedback from the teacher, parent and pupil.
- Children may move off the SEN register when they have ‘made sufficient progress and are able to fully access all aspects of the curriculum without additional support.
