Special Educational Needs

 

At Prestwood Village Schools we recognise that sometimes learning can be challenging for pupils and that some children may have barriers to their learning.  We provide quality first teaching for all pupils. If pupils have been identified as having additional needs, we offer individualised support to these children. 


Every child on the SEND register has a SEND support plan.  This support plan outlines desired outcomes, type of provision, time and financial costings.  These are shared with parents and carers three times per year. 


We have Learning Support Assistants (key workers) to support those children with additional needs.  They are trained to run a number of interventions.

 

SEND Support Plans and Ordinarily Available Provision

 

Assess, Plan, Do, Review as set out in the SEND Code of Practice 5.36

 

Assess

If we feel your child has SEND, we will write a SEND support plan which as a mainstream school we must provide. This plan identifies your child's needs, the action needed and planned outcomes. However, if your child's needs are severe or complex they may go straight to the next step - formal assessment.

 

Plan

Every child on the SEND register has a SEND support plan. This outlines desired outcomes, type of provision, time and financial costings.

 

Do

We have Teaching Assistants to support those children with additional needs. They are trained to run a number of interventions and support children in class with the targets outlined on their support plans.

 

Review

These are shared with parents and carers three times per year.

 

Ordinarily Available Provision (OAP) promotes a consistent ethos to supporting children receiving SEND Support. This approach has been created by schools, professionals and parents and is a fantastic user-friendly, accessible resource for all. It outlines the special educational needs that children may have across the four broad areas, with easy to use provision suggestions for all members of school staff and families alike, as well as strategies for the whole school and quality first teaching.

 

Pastoral Support

 

At Prestwood Village Schools we believe that good mental health is important to thrive in life.  We employ a full time Pastoral Lead (Mrs Grace O'Connor) across both the Infant and the Junior School. If you have any concerns regarding your child's mental health and wellbeing, please do not hesitate to contact her via the details below:
