If pupils continue to have barriers to making progress, despite high-quality teaching targeted at their areas of needs, the class teacher, with support from the SENCO, will assess whether a pupil has a significant learning difficulty, which may require further adaptive teaching or more highly tailored support or interventions.
Children identified as having Special Educational Needs (SEN) will be added to the schools SEN register. This will be discussed fully with parents/Carers first. We use the Oxfordshire SEN handbook and descriptors to help us identify whether a child has SEN needs and what their primary area of need may be.
Children identified as having SEN will have a Pupil Profile written which will be discussed and agreed with parents and reviewed regularly. This will specify targets with support that will be closely monitored for progress.
A child that has been placed on the SEN register:
May need further assessments, outside agency input or a request to the Local authority for an Education and Healthcare Plan (EHCP).
