We have a team of dedicated teachers and support staff who work to ensure we meet the needs of all our children and work is consistently differentiated and presented in a variety of ways to meet different learning styles. The staff use an Assess, Plan, Do and Review cycle to identify and meet the needs of the children with SEND.
Where, through tracking and despite high-quality targeted teaching, pupils are found to be making inadequate progress, the class teacher, working with the SENDco will assess whether the child has ‘significant difficulty’ and if this proves to be the case then in consultation with parents, SEND support documentation will be drawn up detailing provision provided. All provision is reviewed with parents and by all those involved on a termly basis.
The School works closely in partnership with outside agencies including Occupational Therapy, CAMHS (Child and Adolescent Mental Health), The Cognition and Learning Team and Speech and Language Therapy Team. We call on these professionals should we require further advice.
If parents have concerns regarding the progress of their children they are welcome to speak to their child's class teacher and/or the SENDCo about how the school is supporting their child to reach their potential.
At Carrington Infant School we have a system where children with SEND needs are identified on a Provision Register. We firmly believe that if intervention is put in place when children are still relatively young, learning will be accelerated and the majority of children will leave the school working at least within expected parameters.
