HOW IS THE DECISION MADE ABOUT WHAT TYPE AND HOW MUCH SUPPORT MY CHILD WILL RECEIVE?

v  The SENCO and class teachers determine the level of support required to meet individual pupil’s needs.

v  Pupils on the SEND Register will have Individual Provision Plans that are shared with parents termly. These meetings give parents the opportunity to discuss the level of support.

v  The level of support provided will be directly related to the individual pupil’s needs in order to ensure that pupils reach age expected levels.

v  Where a pupil has been awarded an Education Health Care Plan the Local Authority, in consultation with the school,  will determine the level of support. This is reviewed at least annually.

HOW DO WE KNOW IF IT HAS HAD AN IMPACT?

v  Termly conferencing sessions between SENCO, Class teachers and Learning Support Assistants to review progress and make changes to intervention programmes or level of support as necessary.  During these meetings progress academically against national / age expected levels will be discussed.

v  For pupils on the SEND Register there will be termly meeting which, includes  parents, to review targets set on the Individual Provision Plan and assess the impact these are having on progress. We strongly encourage parents to attend these meetings.

v  Review meetings, that include teacher, parents and other supporting agencies,  will be held at least annually for pupils who are supported by a SENSA or EHCP and outcomes shared with the Local Authority.

v  Class teacher and the SENCO are happy to meet with parents, at a mutually convenient time, to discuss progress in addition to the more formal review meetings.

v  Children may be removed from the SEND register when they have ‘caught-up’ or made sufficient progress.
