Children may, for a variety of reasons, require additional support beyond that of their peers, in order to ensure that their needs are met. Parents/guardians will always be informed if this is the case. The class teacher will work very closely with parents to explain how we deliver this work and share the progress made.
 
Any parent who wishes to discuss their child’s individual needs should contact their class teacher in the first instance. Where pupils have an Education Health Care Plan (EHCP), teachers will  have meetings with parents/guardians so that their progress and future planning can be discussed and agreed together.
 
If you have a query or wish to speak to our SENDCo Mrs Tracey Clarke. If you require any of the information on this website as a paper copy, please contact the school secretary who would be pleased to help.
COVID -19 update
 
Aspire Academy Trust is following to DfE guidance (June 18th) and subsequent Local Authority guidance in all matters related to SEND. 
Each child with an EHCP is being robustly supported through a risk assessment. Each case is evaluated on an individual basis in collaboration with families and other agencies. Due to COVID - 19 some elements of plans cannot be safely delivered despite all reasonable endeavours. In the same way, some elements of the SEND Information report /policy cannot be delivered in full. The DfE recognises that we need to consider 'what can reasonably be provided during this temporary period'. This will be reviewed in September 2020.
