Additional and Special Educational Needs

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

All children are unique, special and have individual strengths and needs. Children in school with SEN and/or disabilities will get support that
is specific to their individual needs. This may all be provided by the class teacher or may include:
• Other staff in the school
• Staff who visit from outside agencies such as the Speech and Language Therapy (SLT) Service or a Learning Support Service
• Staff who will visit the school from the Local Authority central services such as the ASD Outreach Team or Sensory Service ( for
children with a hearing or visual need)
• An assessment by an Educational Psychologist or other specialists e.g. Occupational Therapy.
• Working 1:1 or in small groups on a specific programme of work e.g. Numeracy skills , Literacy skills, Phonic skills, Social skills,
Communication skills or Anger Management Programmes if appropriate.
• Providing special equipment/resources as required to support your child’s learning and development
The class teacher (sometimes with the Headteacher or SENCO) will always explain to you what the concerns are and also explain to you
what the plans for your child include. If outside agencies are used, we always ask your permission before making a referral. If you have any
queries related to the interventions or support that your child receives, please contact the class teacher, Headteacher or the SENCO.

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

All parents are encouraged to contribute to their child’s education. This happens through:
- Discussions with the class teacher, either formally at IEP meetings and parent/teacher consultations, or informally at the end of
the day. These discussions are important, so that we know about your child in the home setting, we can explain what we are doing in
school and can tell you about how your child is doing in school. This helps to make sure that we are doing similar things to support
the children at home, and we can share what is working well at home and in school.
- Discussions with other professionals e.g. the SENCO, Headteacher, Speech and Language Therapist, Educational Psychologist.
Information from outside professionals is shared with you (either verbally or written reports or both) .
This may also happen through other means e.g. a home/school communication book, or TAC (Team Around the Child) meetings/TAF (team
Around the Family) meetings.

Regular review meetings (approximately every 6 weeks) also provide opportunities for parents/carers to discuss their child’s learning and
teaching with the class teacher.
