It is my role to ensure that the day to day management of children with SEND (Special, Educational, Needs and Disability) and LAC (Looked after Children) is effective and adequate support is given in order to overcome their barriers to learning. Provision for each child is individual depending upon their needs. This may include an appropriate intervention with the aim of closing or bridging gaps in their learning or a specific resource they may require to access learning. Advice is sought for children with complex needs from external agencies if required. I work closely with a range of external agencies and ensure advice is implemented to best support pupils; these include: SEMH (Social Emotional and Mental Health Team), LCI (Learning, Communication and Interaction Team), Early Years Support Team, Autism Support, Visual Impairment Team, Hearing Impairment Team, Speech and Language, Health professionals and ADHD solutions who offer further support in each given area.
If you have any concerns regarding your child, please feel free to contact the school office on 0116 2330666 or come in to make an appointment. I am available Wednesday morning, all day Thursday and all day Friday. If I am unavailable, I will endeavour to be in touch as soon as possible.
