SEN

At Roger Ascham Primary School,  we approach special educational needs and disability (SEND) through observation, assessment and discussions with parents/carers and multi-agency professionals e.g. GP, school nurse, Educational Psychologists, therapists etc.  We pride ourselves on working in a person-centred way and approach each child's difficulties with respect and an open mind.

 

Who's involved?

Our school has a designated Special Educational Needs and Disability Coordinator ( SENDCo) called Mr Harris.

 

Parents/carers are consulted at every stage and invited to attend meetings with the SENDCo, as well as other support services that we provide at school.

 

Our pastoral team support children and families across the school.

Our Pastoral Team consists of Ms Natai (safeguarding lead), Mrs Bain (learning mentor and deputy safeguarding lead), Mr Harris (SENDCo and designated person for looked after and post-looked after children), Mr Allen (art therapist) and Mr Towell (specialist teacher).

 

 SEND Information Report

 

Every school has to provide a SEND Information report outlining their part in the 'Local Offer' (see the link below). Our information report was updated in November 2020.

Special Educational Needs

At Roger Ascham Primary School,  we approach special educational needs and disability (SEND) through observation, assessment and discussions with parents/carers and multi-agency professionals e.g. GP, school nurse, Educational Psychologists, therapists etc.  We pride ourselves on working in a person-centred way and approach each child's difficulties with respect and an open mind.

 

Every school has to provide a clear description (SEND Information report) outlining their part in the 'Local Offer.' (See the links on this page).

 

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.
