How is a child identified as having a SEND?

  • The teacher continually assesses the needs of all children in their class.
  • Every child is formally assessed six times each year.
  • Meetings are held with teaching staff, SENCO and phase leader. We discuss the progress of all children and identify any children who are not making their best possible progress.
  • Interventions are then planned and set for the children.
  • These are reviewed and if a child has not responded to the intervention, we will speak to the parents.
  • A meeting will then be set with the SENCO and referrals to relevant outside agencies may be made
  • If a child continually requires a significant amount of support and they are not responding to interventions and support from the outside agencies, they will receive an IEP support plan.
