When pupils have identified SEN before they start here, we work with the people who already know them (teachers, teaching assistants, parents, outside agencies) and then use this information to work out how best to support your child in our school.
If you think your child has SEN, get in touch with us so we can discuss it further. We will then share with you what we think and agree with you what the next steps should be so we can all work together to help your child.
If our staff think that your child has SEN because they are not making the same progress as other pupils; they may not be able to follow instructions or answer the questions for example, we will observe them; assess their understanding of what we are doing in school and use tests to pinpoint what is causing their difficulty. This may involve other professionals, for example Speech and Language therapists or the School Nursing Team, but you will be consulted first.
