In deciding whether to make special education provision to support educational, social, physical or emotional needs, we:
Where a pupil is identified as having a special educational need we follow a graduated approach which takes the form of cycles of Assess, Plan, Do, Review.
This means that we will:
Review the support and progress – The impact of any intervention is reviewed with teachers, parents/carers and the child looking at progress towards targets and next steps.
As part of this approach every child with SEN will have an individualised SEN Support Plan that describes the child’s needs, outcomes & provision to meet those needs. Parents/carers and child/YP (where appropriate) views are integral to the process.
A small percentage of children and young people with significant and/or complex needs may require an assessment that could lead to an Education, Health and Care Plan.
An EHC assessment would be carried out where the current levels of support and intervention are not leading to improved progress for the child and where further support might be needed to ensure the needs of an individual child are fully met.
Current additional EHCP support includes specialist speech, language and communication support, additional support for children with physical difficulties to access the full curriculum, emotional and social support for children where this is impacting on their learning and additional support with cognition and learning to ensure that the pace and level of learning meets the needs of the child.
As required by the Local Authority and the new SEN code of Practice 2014, here is the SEN Information Report of Ryelands Primary School. In it are all the details of what we as a school provide for your children with regards to SEN. If you have any questions or feedback, please contact Annika Smith, SENDCO, to discuss these.
This the local offer of Lancashire. This link will provide you with information and guidance about what the local authority offers in relation to children with SEN.
