Special Education Needs
The name of our SENCO (Special Needs Co-ordinator) is Mrs Hatch.
At Greenlands, we ensure that all children including those with SEN make good progress. We use the 2014 Code of Practice as a basis for organising our SEN provision.
All children access Quality First Teaching and are monitored during the academic year. For any children who struggle, there is a highly structured invention programme which is in place throughout the school. This is provided for any child who requires additional support for any aspect of learning. This could be accessed in short phases or for longer periods of time, depending on the needs of the child. If, despite the above support, a child does not make progress, then the school will call upon the expertise of external agencies such as our inclusion teacher, Mrs Crook, educational psychologists, speech and language therapists etc.
Children who have additional special educational needs will have an Individual Learning Plan (ILP) to support their learning in school. Their progress will be tracked/assessed using PIVATS, which allows small steps of achievement to be celebrated. Parents of children with an ILP will meet with the class teacher and SENCO every term to discuss their child's progress and share any concerns.
Further details can be found in our SEN Policy, a copy of which is available for a small fee to cover the photocopying.
Should you have any complaints about the provision made for your child, please first discuss the problem with the class teacher and then the SENCO. If there continues to be a problem, please let the Mrs Cornwell, the Head teacher, know. In very rare circumstances, it may be necessary to involve Governors. In this case, the concerns should be put in writing to Mr G Tyson who is the Chairman of the Governors.
