Our school is an inclusive one, and we treat every child as an individual. The staff have a fantastic understanding of Special Educational Needs and this is reflected in the amount of support that we put in for ALL of our learners.
September saw the introduction of a new SEND Code of Practice which provides an overview of what schools and other settings should provide for children and young people from birth to 25. Communication with parents and carers is crucial and you will be kept well informed of the progress that your child is making, any targets or additional support that they may need.
If you have concerns about your child’s progress, you should first speak to your child’s class teacher. If we feel that it needs further investigation, I may arrange a meeting to discuss the needs of your child, plan their next steps and in some instances put in a request to the Local Authority for outside agency support. If you have additional concerns or would like more information, please make an appointment at the office, or for a less formal ‘catch up’, I try to be out on the playground each day. For more information on what we offer our children, please see our SEND Information Report.
Below are some useful links, including a link to the North Somerset Local Offer, which outlines the support they provide for children and young people and their parents. I look forward to meeting you.
