Identification of SEND
Class teachers regularly monitor the progress of all children. Regular pupil progress meetings are carried out throughout the year to discuss the progress of the pupils in each class with the Deputy Head teacher.
If a teacher is concerned about your child’s progress, they will ask to have a brief meeting with you to discuss their concerns. With your permission, you and the teacher would complete an Early Monitoring form.
The Early Monitoring Process
During this meeting, you and the class teacher will discuss your child’s progress, strengths and any difficulties. Together, you will decide on long term outcomes for your child.
The class teacher and SENCO will work together to put in place strategies to help your child to overcome barriers in the classroom. Your child might be put into an intervention group to help support their area of need.
After 6 weeks, you will be invited to a review meeting to discuss your child’s progress in light of the strategies and interventions that have been put in place. During this meeting we will look at the evidence and discuss if your child needs to be placed on the SEN register.
