What to do if you think your child needs additional support
If you feel that your child may have Special Educational Needs, please speak to your child’s class teacher. We can then arrange a time to meet together with the SENDCo to discuss your concerns. During the meeting we can plan any next steps together.
These could be:
All the above measures will be shared with the child’s parent/guardian at all times.
In order to ascertain the level of need, we use the graduated approach. This means that your child will first be supported through quality first teaching. Your child’s class teacher will assess your child’s needs and plan how they will be supported. After a given amount of time, we will review the provision in place and plan new steps. From here on in, we continue with plan – do – assess – review cycle. This ensures that we are always up to date with your child’s successes and how we can support them further. We may assess your child using the PIVATS scheme (Performance Indicators for Valued Assessment and Targeted Learning). This provides small measurable steps in order to progress learning in key areas.
If you have any further concerns, please refer to our school's Complaints Policy.
