In order to meet the needs of SEND pupils, we regularly undertake a cycle of provision management involving assess, plan, do and review.
Assess – a detailed assessment of a pupil’s needs is made using a range of information from a variety of professionals through observations, assessment, analysis of attainment and progress, talking to pupils, parents (during Structured Conversations or other meetings) and other professions.
Plan – through the Progress Support Meetings (PSM), a plan for support and intervention is agreed by all relevant parties and targets are set. PSM involve the child’s class teacher, the SENCo and the Pastoral Support Manager.
Do – The programme of support and intervention is implemented.
Review – The impact of the support and intervention is reviewed and the cycle begins again.
Family support is also available through the Pastoral and SEND teams. If a parent/carer would like support they are welcome to contact the SENDCo or the Pastoral Lead and we will work out the best strategy for support together.
At Tredworth Junior School, the Pastoral Lead works closely with the SENDCo to ensure that all children are receiving the support needed to make appropriate progress and that every child has the opportunity to thrive and reach their full potential. The Pastoral Lead provides a vital link between home and school particularly when it is needed most. She offers help and support to parents and children, signposting to outside agencies and assisting parents/carers to access support from other agencies working outside the school setting. The Pastoral Lead also offers advice and support to parents/carers to enable them to offer the best level of support to their own children.
Additional contact may take place through school based key workers with specialisms in the needs of the child.
