SEND Information Report



Our Special Educational Needs Coordinator (SENCo) is Kristy Smith. She can be contacted via the school office or on enquiries@sfp.wwpat.org with email marked for the attention of Mrs Smith.


If a pupil’s needs relate to more specific areas of their education such as spelling, handwriting, numeracy or literacy skills then the pupil may be placed in a small focus group to meet their needs.  This may be run by the teacher or Learning Support Assistant.  The length of time of the intervention may vary according to need but will be monitored regularly.  Interventions will be reviewed by the Special Educational Needs Co-Ordinator (SENCO) to establish the effectiveness of the provision and to inform future planning.  We shall monitor children at this point by adding them to our SEN register at the level of School Response.  Termly Meetings will be held between parents, the Class Teacher and the SENCO to review progress.


If a pupil has higher level needs we shall ask for more specialist advice from other agencies such as Rotherham Learning Support Service, Educational Psychologist, Speech and Language Therapy or Child and Adolescent Mental Health Service (CAMHS).  We shall monitor children at this level by creating an individual education plan (IEP).  They shall be recorded on our SEN register at the level of Formal Response.  Termly Meetings will be held between parents, the class teacher, the SENCO and any other external support to review progress.


If a pupil’s needs are more complex an assessment of educational, health and care needs may be undertaken by the authority and an Educational Health Care Plan (EHCP) will be written.  This is developed in collaboration with the child, family and other relevant professionals.
