How does your school know if my child needs extra
- Children are continually assessed and
monitored by class teachers and classroom support staff. Our termly pupil
progress meetings indicate whether a child is not making expected or
is attaining below age expected levels. This may indicate SEN. Staff also raise
concerns on a day to day basis with our SENCo.
- We listen to parents. You know your child
best and may pick up on the first signs of difficulty. If you tell us
you think your child has a SEN we will discuss this with you and check it out.
We will share with you what we find and agree with you what we will do next and
what you can do to help your child.
- If your child has identified or suspected
SEN before they start at Longshaw we work with the people who already know
them and use the information already available to identify how we can meet
their current and any emerging needs in our school setting.
- We work closely and liaise with external
agencies involved with your child.
