SEN and Disability

In line with the new SEN Code of Practice (September 2014) we are currently supporting 33 children with educational needs following a graduated response.

14 children have school support (previously children at School Action) which involves them working in small groups or a small amount of 1:1 support with a teaching assistant.

14 children with SEN school support (previously children at School Action Plus) which involves them having outside agency support and more intensive support to meet their specific needs.

5 children have a Statement of Educational Need. These children receive extra funding from Walsall LEA. They have had multi-agency assessment and their progress is monitored very closely by the outside agencies involved as well as our school. 

Progress is being tracked through normal school tracking system, through IEP and review meetings, IEP target tracking using traffic light system and a more detailed SEN tracking sheet which includes reading age, spelling age, High Frequency Sight Words known, phonic level etc.
