Each child’s education will be planned by the class teacher. It will be differentiated accordingly to suit the child’s individual needs. This may include additional, focused, and targeted support by the teacher or teaching assistant in class. At Luddenham we have learning groups for English and Maths so children who require extra support will be in a smaller learning group with more adult support.
If a child has needs related to more specific areas of their education, such as spelling, handwriting, English & Math skills etc. then they will receive focussed support. This is delivered by either a teacher or teaching assistant. The length of time of any intervention will vary according to the need, but will generally be for a term. All interventions reviewed termly by those involved, including the children, to ascertain the effectiveness of the provision and to inform future planning.
These interventions will be recorded on provision maps (records of interventions - including information concerning the timing and impact). A provision map is also a record of support that children are receiving If you have any queries related to the interventions please do not hesitate to contact the class teacher or SENCo.
Pupil Progress Meetings are held regularly through-out the year. This is a meeting where the class teacher meets with the Head teacher or Deputy Head Teacher to discuss the progress of the children in their class. This shared discussion highlights any potential difficulties in order for further support to be planned.
Occasionally a child may need more specialist support from an outside agency. Referral forms are completed in conjunction with the child and the parents/carers and then forwarded to the most appropriate agency. After a series of assessments, a programme of support is usually provided to the school and parents/carers.
Mrs Wilson is also the named person to monitor Safeguarding and Child protection procedures and the Lead Designated Safeguarding Lead.
The Governing Body is responsible for both rigorous challenge and for supporting Luddenham in being as inclusive as possible. It ensures all children, parent/carers and staff are treated in an equitable way. They monitor and review the accessibility plan and all other statutory policies as defined by the DfE.
