What support is available for pupils with SEND?

What support is available for pupils with SEND?

  • The school budget, received from Leicester LA, includes money for supporting children with SEND.
  • The Head Teacher decides on the budget for Special Educational Needs and Disabilities in consultation with the school governors, on the basis of needs in the school.
  • The Head Teacher and the  SENCO discuss all the information they have about SEND in the school, including:
    • the children getting extra support already
    • the children needing extra support
    • the children who have been identified as not making as much progress as would be expected

And decide what resources/training and support is needed.

  • All resources/training and support are reviewed regularly and changes made as needed.
  • Support for children at Alderman Richard Hallam Primary School is based on research about the effectiveness of SEND provision; in the majority of cases this is not one to one support but a variety of strategies to meet the individual needs of our pupils.
  • In some cases we may approach the LA for support with additional (Element 3) funding where levels of need are extremely high.
