SEND Co-ordinator: Mrs Naomi Strickland.
Please be aware Mrs. Naomi Strickland is on Maternity Leave from May 2022. Miss Rebecca White will be covering the SENCO role from May 2022.
Queen Eleanor’s C of E Junior School is a mainstream, inclusive school that fully complies with the requirements outlined in the Special Educational Needs Code of Practice (2014).
Staff have been trained to teach learners who may have difficulties with:
· Cognition and Learning
· Communication and Interaction
· Social, Emotional and Mental Health
· Sensory and/or Physical Needs
As an Academy in The Good Shepherd Trust, the Trust is the Admission Authority for the school and has agreed a Published Admission Number (PAN) of 90 children at the age of 7+ with the Local Authority (LA). Any child with an Education, Health and Care Plan naming the school will be admitted.
All children’s levels of progress are assessed continuously, enabling teachers to identify children who may have Special Educational needs (SEND). All children have access to all areas of our broad curriculum and all class teachers differentiate work to provide the most appropriate programme of study for each child. When we are concerned that a child is not making expected progress, we liaise with families and may call upon the services of outside agencies that can assess children and suggest learning strategies or a specific learning programme.
All children in the school are offered our Wave 1 provision, which is set out in more detail in our schools Curriculum Intent for Children with SEND needs. Children who need more support will be identified for our wave 2 or 3 provision.
Please contact Miss Rebecca White (Interim SENCO) via email: firstname.lastname@example.org if you require any further information.
