1 Special Educational Needs Information At Staplehurst School we aim to support ALL children to enable them to achieve in school. Quality First Teaching is the key to this, however some children at some stage in their education will need extra support in order for them to achieve. Tonianne Wrightson is Inclusion Manager and SENCo and DCPC The SENCo is responsible for the implementation of the SEND (Special Educational Needs and Disability) Policy. The SENCo coordinates the provision provided for individual or small groups of children with SEN. The SENCo liaises regularly with staff and SLT (Senior Leadership Team) to monitor the progress of pupils. The SENCo also liaises with external agencies. If you have any SEN concerns please contact the SENCo: The Local Offer The Local Offer was first introduced in the Green Paper (March 2011) as a local offer of all services available to support children with SEND (Special Educational Needs and Disabilities) and their families. The Kent.gov Local Offer will provide parents / carers with information about how to access services in their area and what they can expect from those services. The Kent.gov Local offer will be found at: Kent s Local Offer During the last year the Local Offer Steering Group has developed questions about SEND for schools to answer. There are 14 questions devised in consultation with parents / carers and other agencies. These questions reflect their concerns and interests. It is the school s responsibility to provide information to enable parents / carers to make decisions about how to support their child s needs. Below are Staplehurst School s current answers to the questions. These answers will be reviewed regularly in consultation with staff, governors and parents / carers. 1

4 1. How does Staplehurst School know if pupils need extra help? We know if a pupil needs help if: Concerns are raised by the parent / carer, teacher, teaching assistant, SENCo, any other professional, the pupil them self, or previous schools; The pupil is under achieving or under attaining; There is a change in the pupil s behaviour; Poor test scores. What should I do if I think my child may have special educational needs? If you have any concerns: Initially contact your child s class teacher; If you are still concerned, then contact the SENCo, Miss Wrightson. 2. How will Staplehurst School support my child? All lessons are carefully planned and differentiated taking into account the needs of all the children in the class; If a child has needs related to a more specific area of their education or social skills, such as handwriting, spelling, numeracy or literacy skills, then the child may be placed in small focus groups where they can receive additional help for their area of need. These interventions may be run by the class teacher, teaching assistant or other members of staff and can take place either in the classroom or outside the classroom. These interventions will be placed on a class provision map and this will be shared with the parents / carers of the children receiving the interventions. If a child has a statement of special educational needs or an EHCP (Education and Health Care Plan), then an IEP Individual Education Plan) will drawn up by the class teacher and shared with the parent / carer. All intervention groups on provision maps and IEPs are regularly monitored and the impact of those interventions is assessed, this information is used to inform future planning and decide if further interventions are necessary. Any concerns about theses interventions can be discussed with the class teacher or SENCo. Pupil Progress meetings are held termly, this is where the class teacher meets with the Head or deputy Head and SENCo to discuss the progress of pupils in their class. Concerns about the progress of any child will have already been identified prior to the meeting by the class teacher in consultation with their Phase Leader. Occasionally a pupil may need support from outside agencies such as Speech and Language, Occupational Therapy or the Specialist Teaching Service, referral forms will then be completed with parental agreement and sent to the appropriate agency. 4

5 3. How will the curriculum be matched to my child s needs? Work is carefully planned and differentiated by the teachers to meet the needs of all children. When a child has been identified as having special needs then the work will be further differentiated to remove any barriers to learning to enable the child to access the curriculum and achieve. Small focus groups or 1:1 work may be planned to target particular areas of need, these sessions may be delivered by the class teacher or teaching assistants. Pupils with Statements of Educational Needs or the Education and Health care Plans will have IEPs written by the class teacher and shared with the parent / carer to address the specific needs of the child. If necessary, specialist equipment such as writing slopes, wobble cushions, coloured filters etc may be given to the child. 4. How will I know how my child is doing? You will be able to discuss your child s progress at Parent Consultation Evenings; You can use the home contact book to liaise with the class teacher; Individual Assessment summaries are sent out mid-year; A report is sent out at the end of the school year; Appointments can be made to discuss anything on more detail with the class teacher, by contacting the office. If you wish to discuss anything with the SENCO she can be contacted either through the school office or directly (see above for contact information). How will you help me to support my child s learning? Provision maps and IEPs are regularly shared with parent / carers, any suggestions of how you can help at home will be discussed. Miss Wrightson (Inclusion Manager and SENCo) may meet with you to discuss how to support your child. Mrs Laming (FLO) or a member of the SLT may meet with you if there are concerns about behaviour or emotional needs. If outside agencies have been involved, there may be programmes of study suggested that can be used at home, this will be shared with the parent / carers. 5. What support will there be for my child s overall well-being? The school offers a wide variety of pastoral support for pupils who are encountering emotional, social and behavioural difficulties. These include: Members of staff such as the class teacher, Phase Leaders, FLO, SENCo, teaching assistants are readily available to discuss issues and concerns; 5

6 Arc counselling is available in school if parents / carers and school feel this is appropriate; Social skill groups, Lego Club and other groups are run by staff to promote wellbeing and raise self-esteem; A quiet area can be provided for children who are unable to cope at lunchtime. 1:1 adult support, play leaders, Buddies and Smile Ambassadors are on the playgrounds at lunchtimes. Pupils with medical needs If a pupil has a medical need then a detailed Care Plan is completed by Miss Wrightson in consultation with the parents / carers and appropriate health care professionals if necessary; Where necessary and with parental /carer agreement medicines can be administered; Specialist Diabetic Training is delivered to staff caring for children with diabetes; Epipen training is given to staff; All staff have basic first aid training; There are members of staff with specialist paediatric first aid training. 6. What specialist services and expertise are available at or accessed by the school? It may be necessary at times to consult with outside agencies in order to receive their specialised expertise.

How will my child be included in activities outside the classroom? We are an inclusive school and activities and school trips are available to all.
