How will the School let me know if they have any concerns?
If School thinks your child needs extra support, we will always talk to you about this, we have an open and honest approach to communication within our school.
In the first instance your child’s class teacher will liaise with you by arranging a meeting in school to discuss progress.
There are scheduled progress meetings in the Autumn and Spring term which provide an opportunity to discuss any concerns with their learning.
The School’s graduated approach to meeting learning difficulties has been designed so that parent/carers will be informed if their child has been identified as requiring additional support.
The Inclusion Manager (SENCO), Mrs Johnson, will make sure that all necessary school staff are aware of your child’s needs and worries.
If your child has been identified with extra educational needs, an Individual Learning Plan will be written with the teacher and shared with you and your child.
If your child has medical needs, a care plan and pupil profile will be written and shared with you.
All staff have access to these plans. The plans identify how your child should be helped to succeed and make progress. These plans will be reviewed regularly.
Provision at St Chad’s
In our school we make provision for pupils with all types of Special Educational Needs and Disabilities.
All children in school have support within lessons through first quality teaching, differentiation and precision teaching strategies. This means that learning activities are planned according to the level the child is working at , so that they make continuous progress from their individual starting points.
All staff were trained in Dyslexia in 2015, and St Chad’s was awarded with entry level Dyslexia Friendly status in November 2015.
St Chad’s is a fully accessible school. As a school, we would always make adjustments to ensure that all children are fully included.
