How do we use other adults in school to support pupils with special educational needs or disabilities?
- Our SEND team are able to undertake small group work or one-to-one support as appropriate to meet the needs of pupils with special educational needs or disabilities.
- We have an Intervention teacher who works two days per week with small groups of learners to accelerate their progress.
- Our Learning Mentor is a supportive member of the team with an excellent knowledge of how to support our children and their families. No problem is too big or too small.
- We have a teacher for two days a week who specialises in outdoor learning. This offers a different approach to the curriculum, which supports pupils with social, emotional and behavioural needs.
- A Speech and Language Therapist comes into school several days a term to review and set up a programme for identified pupils.
- A specialist teacher from the Early Intervention Service visits the school for one morning a week to support groups of pupils who have a barrier to their learning.
- Our SENCo analyses pupil performance data each term to ensure every child is making the best possible progress.
- We have a dedicated Educational Psychologist, who visits our school regularly to observe and assess pupils, and offer advice and support.
- We seek advice and equipment from outside agencies as and when the need arises, such as specialist seating, or handrails and steps in toilets.
