Robert Shaw Primary School believes in working positively with all children and is committed to the inclusion of children with special educational needs or disabilities, (SEND) wherever practical. We cater for the needs of all pupils. All teachers plan, teach and mark work which is appropriate and relevant to the needs of all pupils.
Progress of children is monitored continuously; If a child is experiencing particular difficulty then action is carried out in two ways, as set out in the SEND code of practice.
School Action – the trigger for intervention through school action would be from a teacher or others who have concerns about a child.
School Action Plus – the trigger for school action plus would be (despite the additional support detailed in the individualised programme) that the child makes little progress. Additional support from other agencies is usually sought. The child may work in small groups or individually with a teaching assistant if deemed necessary.
For all children who come under these two steps, parents are fully involved. They will see, and have copies, if required, of the child’s Individual Education Plan (IEP) and the review of the IEP.
If you have any complaint about the special educational provision for your child, or about special educational needs provision generally, please speak to the Head Teacher or designated governor for SEN. If you speak to a governor, he/she will, in the first instance, refer the matter to the Head Teacher. The Head Teacher will investigate and then contact you.
