Our Deputy Headteacher is our Inclusion Leader and has overall responsibility for SEND and Inclusion. This means that we regularly discuss SEND issues in Senior Leadership Team meetings. We keep support for children with SEND under review.
Our Inclusion Leader also manages the day to day provision. She plans the programmes of support for individuals and small groups of pupils with SEND.
She keeps a list of children we identify as having a SEND.
She also keeps a record of the provision* of all the different ways that we provide extra support (for example, support for reading, communication and maths) for children with SEND
A child’s provision can also be found on their My Plan document. This document is also a record your termly structured conversation meeting.
We carefully monitor the progress and well-being of children with SEND and the quality of our provision, including teaching and support. For example senior leaders observe lessons and hold discussions with teachers and support staff.
If something is not working well, we change and improve our provision. We make sure that support is well matched to a child’s needs. We also make sure that the provision is well researched and effective.
The Governing Body* challenges us to make sure we constantly improve the quality of provision for children with SEND and the outcomes that they achieve.
We have several parents on the governing body and one of their roles is to represent the views and concerns of all parents, including those with children with SEND
We have a Governor who takes a particular responsibility for SEND matters. She meets with our Inclusion Leader once a term and makes visits to classrooms looking at learning and teaching.
We fully involve our Governors when we review and revise our SEND policy and our Information Report at the end of each school year.
