Special Educational Needs
At Grange Farm we strongly believe that all children have the right to be supported in order to meet their full potential, regardless of their needs or disabilities. We are a fully inclusive school and work hard to ensure that we are able to provide the best support we can for all our children.
Mrs Scott is our school SENDCo (Special Educational Needs & Disabilities Coordinator) who maintains an overview of provision for all children in the school on the SEND register. Being on the SEND register indicates that a child will receive additional support in order to meet their full potential.
Children may be put on the SEND register for a wide range of learning, medical or social and emotional needs and the support in place for them will be individual to their specific need. The class teacher maintains responsibility for the day-to-day provision of any SEND child in the class but this is overseen by Mrs Scott.
Children on the SEND register may have a Pupil Passport, My Plan, Individual Education Plan (IEP) or Education & Health Care Plan (EHCP) depending on which is more suitable for their level of need. Each level of individual plan will involve a different level of support within school and will follow a varied structure of meetings and reviews to share information and set targets between school and parents.
As a school we work with a range of outside agencies to support the children on the SEND register as well as to identify whether or not a child should be added to the register. These agencies may include:
- Complex Communications Team (CCT)
- Social, Emotional, Mental Health and Learning Team (SEMHL)
- Speech and Language (Sp&L)
- The Virtual School (for Looked After Children)
- Educational Psychologist
School will always request consent from parents for outside agencies to work with their child and parents will be kept informed of the work usually through the report provided by the agency.
