We hold SEN reviews as part of Pupil Progress Meetings every other term and offer a wide range of interventions within the school to support children. These include:
• Nurture support
• Lego Therapy
• Sensory Circuits
• BEAM ( Gross motor programme)
• 1:1 Reading
• Toe by Toe (Dyslexic reading intervention)
• Speech link
• Language for Learning
• Numeracy/Literacy/Phonics boosters
• Clever Fingers (fine motor intervention)
• Write From the Start (fine motor programme)
• Memory Magic
Should your child at any point require extra support in school, you will receive a letter detailing their intervention programme, time and person running it and a target for your child to be working towards. These are reviewed every other month.
Following Government changes to the SEN Code of Practice in September 2014 we now have only 2 official levels of SEN within the school. These are children with an Education Heath Care Plan (EHCP- which replaced the old style Statement) and children on SEN support. As the criteria for these levels changed, we have also adopted a tier system to track and monitor our other vulnerable pupils who no longer fit within these two categories. Our tier system is as follows:
Tier 4 – Education Health Care Plan
Tier 3 – SEN support (Long term, high level need)
Tier 2 – Vunerable pupils- This may include: low impact diagnoses / nurture – well being /English as an Additional Language/ medical conditions. (Long term , low level need)
Tier 1 – monitoring level – short term support for speech and language/ nurture/academic needs.
