SENDCo Lead – Miss Julie Leftley

Inclusion & Special Educational Needs

Together with the teachers and extra adults in school, we are here to help make a positive difference for those children who most need it. We aim to work in partnership with parents, families, outside agencies such as Speech and Language Therapists, Educational Psychologists, Doctors, feeder pre-schools, IOW Family Centres and secondary schools.

We offer a range of interventions and ways of supporting learning; it is important that we identify your child’s needs and provide support for them to learn, feel good about themselves and find ways of achieving success.

How We Work

If you have any concerns about your child’s needs in communication and interaction, learning, social, emotional or mental health and/or physical/sensory areas then ask to have a chat with the class teacher. However, at any time, please feel free to come and talk with Miss Julie Leftley (SENCO). You are welcome to call into the office or phone to arrange a time to meet with us.

We follow the national Code of Practice for Special Educational Needs and Disability (2015) Link:

SEN Support

Where a child has been identified as needing SEN Support we will make sure we take positive steps to remove barriers to learning. We will follow a Graduated Approach of ‘assess, plan, do, review’ to ensure the child makes good progress and achieves good outcomes thorough High Quality Inclusive Teaching and where required, evidence based interventions.

Statement/Education Health Care Plan

For a small percentage of children they will have a statement of SEN or an Education Health Care Plan (EHCP) issued by the Local Authority. Their needs must first be assessed through a statutory assessment.
Schools and parents can request this if the child’s needs meet the criteria set by the Local Authority.

At each stage there will be shared conversations with parents/carers. We will work together.

All children with a Special Educational Need will have a Pupil Centred Profile (PCP). This will be shared with you at each Parent Consultation meeting. It will look like this:
