Additional and Special Educational Needs

How do you aim to meet the unique needs of the child?

If your child has identified needs they will be listed on the school’s SEND register and they will have an individual plan, which will be shared with subject teachers. This plan will be reviewed and updated twice within the school year, and they will be accessible to you via the online Parent Portal.
We will keep you informed about who is working with your child and how often external support takes place.
Chew Valley School has a governor with responsibility for special educational needs, this is currently Mrs Susan Parry.
We will regularly ask parents, students and teachers for their views about the provision for children with special educational needs or disabilities.

How do you promote positive relationships and ensure good, ongoing communication with families?

In addition to the normal reporting arrangements, which provide information at three times during the school year, parent or carers can discuss the young person’s progress with SEND Coordinator at any time. Parent consultation evenings with subject teachers happen at least once per school year.
We will help parents/carers to know what progress their child should be making by reporting end of key stage target grades and a current ‘working at’ level for each subject.
The school will identify how well your child is doing in many different ways including: monitoring in lessons, whole school literacy screening (year 7 and 10), diagnostic tests and subject specific assessments.
Regular contact about things that have happened at school is encouraged: by contacting the Home/School Welfare Manager, Mrs Taylor, by writing a note in the student diary, or by telephoning the school to speak to the form tutor, Head of Year or SENDCo.
Students with an Education Health Care plan (or statement) will have an annual review meeting with the SENDCo, any support services who are working with the child will be invited.
