On 1st September 2014, new legislation came into effect for children and young people with special educational needs and disabilities [SEND]. The SEND Code of Practice: 0-25 years (DfE, January 2015) provides schools with statutory guidance to ensure that the right provision is provided for all pupils with SEND so that they succeed with their education and make a successful transition to adulthood.

What Does It Mean If My Child Is Identified As Having SEND?


If your child is identified as having a special educational need, you will have had many discussions with the class teacher prior to working with Mrs Holmes (the Special Educational Needs Co-ordinator). Parents, child and teacher will work in partnership to identify and understand a child’s needs, understand what approach works, give effective support and secure better outcomes. 


What Are The Different Areas of SEND?

The needs of a child with SEND will fall under one or more of these four areas, as outlined in the SEND Code of Practice:

  • Communication and Interaction
  • Cognition and Learning
  • Social, Emotional and Mental Health difficulties
  • Sensory and/or Physical needs


What Support Will My Child Get In School?


Every child at St George’s Catholic Primary receives quality first teaching within a broad and balanced curriculum in an inclusive environment. Work provided is differentiated and with a personalised approach. Where children are identified as having additional needs and require additional support the children’s needs are assessed, individual targets are planned, implemented and reviewed on a regular cycle (Assess, Plan, Do, Review). With the parents and the child working together with school, provision is put in place, targets are set (in an Individual Provision Map) and the targets are reviewed termly. For those children who, despite the targeted support, are making little or no progress, external agencies may be requested to give further advise and support. 


We work with a range of outside agencies: The Visual Impairment Team, Learning Support Team, Educational Psychologists, Teachers of the Deaf and Behaviour Support Team.
