Special Educational Needs and Disability
Please do not hesitate to contact me on the details above or in school if you would like to discuss your child's progress, IEP, intervention or anything else related to Special Educational Needs and/or Disability.
Special Educational Needs and Disability Governor: Mrs S Kus
At Roughlee Church of England Primary School we work with children and their families who have a wide range of special educational needs and disabilities (SEND). Our SEND philosophy places SEND children at the heart of personalised learning and our curriculum and provision is tailored to meet individual children’s needs. All pupils follow the National Curriculum at a level and pace suitable for their ability and to successfully match pupil ability to the Curriculum, we are committed to:
• Differentiated materials (both for reinforcement and extension).
• Access to ICT.
. A range of teaching and learning styles.
• Additional in class support.
• Additional out of class support.
• Flexible groupings (including small group work).
• An innovative and supportive curriculum.
• The appropriate use of rewards and sanctions.
• Mentoring and counselling.
• A broad range of extra-curricular activities.
• Assessment procedures that emphasise children’s strengths and achievements.
For further information please see our SEND INFORMATION REPORT, SEND POLICY and SCHOOL OFFER.
The FIND Directory as part of the Parent Partnership Service at Lancashire County Council is a statutory service that offers information, help and support for parents and carers of children and young people with special educational needs and disabilities [SEND].
The service has a role in making sure that parents and carers views are heard and understood and that these views inform local policy and practice.
Who can I contact for further information or if I have any issues or concerns?
The first point of contact for anything related to your child’s education is the class teacher. We encourage parents not to wait for the next formal opportunity to meet but to contact us on an ongoing basis. Alternatively, the SENDCo/senior leaders can be contacted directly to discuss your concerns.
