SEND for Pupils

How Does the School Know if I Need Extra Help?
Your teacher looks at your work carefully and knows if you need any extra help to achieve your targets. Teachers track your progress carefully and know when you are not doing as well as you should be.
What Should I do if I Think I Need Extra Help?
You should tell your teacher or your parent/carer if you are having problems with your work or feel that you need extra help.
How Will my School Work be Organised to Meet my Individual Needs?
Your teacher will make sure that the work you are given is at the right level for you. You should be able to do the work if you try hard and do your best. Sometimes you will do something different from your friends. If you need any extra help or different resources they will be made available to you. You will be given your own folder with resources you can take with you to every lesson.
How Will I be Involved in Planning for my Needs?
You will be able to discuss your work with your teacher who will let you know what you are doing well and how you can improve (your ‘next steps’).You will be assessed on the targets on your SEND Support Plan (SSP) and your new targets discussed with you.
