1. What kinds of special educational needs does the school/setting make provision for?

St. Luke’s make provision for children with academic, behavioural, social, emotional, physical and sensory needs.

 

2. (For mainstream schools & maintained nurseries only) How does the school/setting know if pupils need extra help and what should I do if I think that my child may have special educational needs?

The progress and attainment of pupils is checked regularly. If children’s progress stalls or their attainment falls below the level expected nationally of their age then the school will take steps to give that child the support they need to move forwards.

Children’s social, emotional and behavioural needs are discussed with parents at consultation evenings and plans are drawn up to support those needs. This might include a nurture group or a behaviour plan depending on the nature of those needs.

Children with medical, physical or sensory needs would have a care plan developed to detail how the school meets those needs.

Early identification and intervention are vital.

3.a) How does the school/setting evaluate the effectiveness of its provision for pupils with special educational needs?

All children have their progress checked on a regular basis. Provision maps, behaviour plans, nurture group and care and medical plans are all reviewed on a regular basis.

 

3.b) How will both the school/setting and I know how my child/young person is doing and how will the school/setting help me to support their learning?

All parents receive information on their child’s progress and attainment against national benchmarks at parent consultation evenings and in the written annual report.

 

 

3.c) What is the school's approach to teaching pupils with special educational needs?

Children with special educational needs have an individual plan drawn up that details how those needs are met. This might include small group learning, 1-1 time with a TA or specialised resources that assist learning.

 

3.d) How will the curriculum and learning be matched to my child/young person's needs?

The matching of curriculum and learning is detailed in planning for whole classes, small groups and individuals. Where children need extra provision to access the curriculum this will be detailed on their provision map.

 

3.e) How are decisions made about the type and amount of support my child/young person will receive?

As the school has a limited amount of support the decisions made about that support are made in conjunction with parents and the school leadership team at review meetings.

 

3.f) How will my child/young person be included in activities outside the classroom, including school trips?

The school is committed to providing all children with access to activities outside the classroom, including school trips. We make every reasonable alteration and support so we can provide children with those opportunities without compromising health and safety.

 

3.g) What support will there be for my child/young person's overall well-being?

The school has a member of staff dedicated to making nurture provision which is achieved by targetting individuals and small groups.

At St. Luke’s we work closely with our parents. We encourage parents to play an active role in writing and supporting each individual plan in conjunction with the school staff.

 

8. What are the arrangements for consulting young people with SEN and involving them in their education?

Where possible and sensible, children are invited to attend review meetings. When this is not possible or would cause undue stress then the child will have a structured conversation with the school SENCO and have their views reported to the review meeting.

 

9. What do I do if I have a concern or complaint about the SEN provision made by the school/setting?

The school’s complaints procedure is outlined in the school complaints procedure which can be found on the school website. Where complaints relate to outside support and funding the school will explain procedures to the parents.

 

10. How does the governing body involve other organisations and services (e.g. health, social care, local authority support services and voluntary organisations) in meeting the needs of pupils with special educational needs and supporting the families of such pupils?
