SEN STATUS

 

K - SEN Support

 

Your child is receiving over and above the Quality First Teaching that all of our children receive, to support them in their specific area of need. They may also have access to the advice of an Outside Professional e.g. Speech and Language Therapist, Educational Psychologist etc.  regarding their individual needs.

 

Education, Health and Care Plan (EHCP)

This was previously known as a Statement of SEN*

*If your child has a Statement of SEN this will be changed over to an EHCP by the Local Authority. You will be contacted when it is your child's turn to go through this process. If you have any questions about this please speak to your child's SENCO.

 

Your child is legally entitled to a certain amount of hours support each week. This support can include in class support, small group work or 1 to 1 support.
