Changes to SEND Register

All children with allocated funding have transferred from a statement to an Education, Health and Care Plan.

There has been a slight decrease in the number of children on SEN Support. This is due to two pupils being discharged from Speech and Language.

External Professionals

We rely on the support provided by external professionals to ensure that we are providing the correct provision for our SEND children.  We currently access support from the following teams:

·         Specialist Teacher Team for Autism & Social Communication Difficulties

·         Specialist Teacher Team for Speech and Language

·         Specialist Teacher Team for Physical & Neurological Impairment

·         Specialist Teacher Team for Learning Difficulties & Disabilities

·         Specialist Teacher Team for Hearing Impairment

·         Occupational Therapy

·         School Nursing Team

·         Educational Psychology Team

·         Speech and Language Therapy



Autism & Social Communication Difficulties

As identified in the previous report, we are in line with many schools across the County in seeing our numbers of children with Autism and Social Communication Difficulties increasing.  Currently, 41% of our SEND children have a diagnosis of ASD.  We have therefore worked closely with the Specialist Teacher Team for Autism and have attended further training to help us plan support for children with Autism. We are hosting the Autism Lead consortium meeting in the next half term. In addition, we provide dedicated release time (one afternoon per week) to our Autism Lead Practitioner so that they can work with colleagues, demonstrate new strategies, monitor support across the school and make new resources.  The Autism Lead Practitioner will work closely with the Inclusion Manager to continue to meet the ever changing needs of our pupils.

New Funding

One new EHCP has been issued in the last academic year. This is good news in that we will be able to provide the support that the individual child needs, but it will also be important to monitor LSA staff training to ensure that we continue to have the skills needed to support an increasing number of children with specific SEN.
