The school SEND Coordinator is Mrs Alanna Richardson

I would like to introduce myself as the Special Educational Needs and Disabilities Co-ordinator  (SENCO) for this academic year.  I am looking forward to carrying on the hard work done by Mrs Stribbling over the years.

The Role of the SENCO involves:

  • Overseeing the day to day operation of the School’s SEND policy.
  • Co-ordinating provision for children with SEND.
  • Liaising with and advising colleagues.
  • Involving other providers and external agencies where appropriate.
  • Liaising with parents of children with SEND.
  • Ensuring the school keeps up to date records of all the pupils with SEND.
  • Developing the SEND provision further.
  • Tracking and monitoring the progress of children with SEND.

Children have a special educational need if they have a learning difficulty which calls for provision/support that is additional to and different from children of the same age.  This can range from extra support from an adult, small group interventions, specialist equipment and/or personalised targets.

The child’s class teacher is responsible for working with the child, planning and delivering an individual programme where appropriate.   

Parents of children on the SEND register who have a Support Plan will have the opportunity to discuss their child’s needs and to share the support plan for this term.  This will be arranged at a later date.

The first point of contact for any concern about a child’s progress and learning will always be the class teacher.  However, I am here to help and support in any way I can.
