Experience of including people with special educational needs and disabilities

At St Botolphs, we endeavour to support all children to reach their potential. Children's progress and wellbeing is closely monitored and discussed with parents in a range of ways, including Parent Consultation Meetings, informal conversations and phone calls. It is important to us that parents feel involved and listened to throughout their child's time at our school.

If there are concerns about a child's progress, the school will follow the 'Plan, Assess, Do, Review' framework, from the 2014 Special Educational Needs Code of Practice.

Types of support provided can be categorised in 3 tiers:

Universal - All children have access to Quality First Teaching, close tracking of progress with learning targets, guided group work and a wide range of learning aids, such as pencil grips, sound and alphabet mats, talk tins, and number lines etc.

Targeted - Children who have begun to make slower than expected progress, may be offered targeted, small group provision, such as booster support or Additional Literacy Support, to help them to catch up with their peers.

Specific - Some children may need support beyond the Universal and Targeted tiers. These children may need more personal 1:1 provision, such as 1:1 intervention support, individual Speech and Language support, or other target focused support connected to a child's Education Health and Care Plan.

The school has good links with a range of external agencies and professionals. If it is agreed by parents and staff that further advice, support strategies or assessment would be beneficial to a child, a referral will be made by the SENDCo, in collaboration with the parents and class teacher.

Our SENCo is a qualified class teacher (teaching a class within the school) and holds a National Award qualification for Special Educational Needs Coordination. All of our teaching staff  are fully trained and all teachers and teaching assistants receive regular opportunities for ongoing training and professional development. Examples of recent staff training include: Accredited Level 3 training in Dyslexia, Pie Corbett Talk for Writing, British Dyslexia Association Dyscalculia Training (upcoming INSET).


For more information about how the school could support your child, please look at our website, or contact the Special Educational Needs Coordinator, Mrs Fitch
