Special Educational Needs
At Roger Ascham Primary School, the special educational needs of children are identified through observation, assessment and discussions with parents/carers and health agencies e.g. GP, school nurse, therapists etc. Parents/carers are consulted at every stage and invited to attend meetings with the SENDCo (Special Educational Needs and Disability Coordinator) and support services.
Every school has to provide a clear description and document (SEND Information report) outlining their part in the 'Local Offer.' (See the link below)
What is the Local Offer?
The local offer provides information on what services children, young people and their families can expect from within their borough. Each school will also specify additional services, agencies and care that is available through their school. It is intended to give parents and children a choice with regard to the support that is needed. Please click the links below for further details about both offers.
Rights Respecting School
One of the other ways that we support this ethos is by completing the Rights Respecting Schools Award. The Rights Respecting Schools Award (RRSA) recognises achievement in putting the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC) at the heart of a school’s planning, policies, practice and ethos. A rights-respecting school not only teaches about children’s rights but also models rights and respect in all its relationships: between teachers / adults and pupils, between adults and between pupils.
If you have any questions or concerns about special educational needs, please contact our SENDCo, Mr Harris.
