We continue to review the school’s SEND monitored list termly.

 

We continue to refer to several outside agencies to help us support children with SEND. Through consulting with other professionals, we can equip teachers and teaching assistants with proficient skills in addressing the needs of our children. 

 

The professionals have worked flexibly and supportively in person and virtually. This year we are planning for professionals to be in school more.

 

We continue to build networks across the other schools to share SEND expertise, ensure consistency, and improve the outcomes for our children. Standards remain high because teachers deliver effective inclusive practice through high-quality everyday personalised teaching.
