How will my child be supported to be part of the school setting?

 

Most children with SEND are supported through the regular opportunities provided to all children - high quality teaching and supportive staff.

 

Some children with social, emotional or mental health needs find some parts of accessing and participating in school life difficult. For these children we offer as appropriate

  • ·Opportunities to work in the Pupil Development Centre, known as The Butterfly Room, where children can discuss worries or concerns.
  • Individual support from a CAMHs worker.
  • We employ an Art Therapist to support children to work on issues through the medium of art and play.

 

Some children will need support to progress academically. Depending on a child’s need we will offer:

  • A differentiated curriculum
  • Small intervention groups targeted at a specific difficulty
  • Extra adult support
  • Outside agency support

 

Hearing Impaired support:

  • Teacher of the deaf
  • Hearing Support Specialist Assistant (HSSA)

 

Medical Needs:

  • We have a policy and system for administration of medication
  • Care plans for pupils with medical needs
  • Support staff to assist pupils with personal care as specified by clinical plans
  • Trained first aid staff.

 

Intimate Care/Toileting Needs:

  • The school has an Intimate Care policy that sets out procedures that should be followed to support children who have toileting issues.
  • Disabled toilets are available
  • Children with toileting needs in Key Stage 1 or 2, will have a toileting plan that is discussed and agreed with parents.
  • All year groups have access to equipment such as: clothes, rubber gloves, disposable wipes, to enable them to support the cleaning or changing of children with these issues. Parents are always informed when this has been necessary.
  • Parents will also be encouraged to attend ‘Poos and Pees’ workshops (for parents to support toilet training of children with special needs) or CAMHs (Child Adolescent Mental Health- when toileting difficulties appear to be emotionally related).
