SEND at Roseberry Primary and Nursery School

How do you identify Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND)?

How does the setting/school/college know if children/young people need extra help and what should I do if I think my child/young person may have special educational needs?

We are an inclusive school who works in partnership with parents to identify and support the individual needs of all pupils.

Pupils are put on the special educational needs register after discussion with parents/guardians if they are not making expected progress depsite receiving additonal support. Pupils may be on the register for different periods of time, and if a pupil has made good progress it may be deemed appropriate to remove them from the register. Parents and pupils are put at the heart of this process.

If your child has special educational needs or a disability, please contact the school office or Miss Baird, the Special Educational Needs and Disablities Co-ordinator, for further guidance. 

How will you support my child with their special educational needs and disability?

How will early years setting/school/college staff support my child/young person?

Lessons at Roseberry Primary and Nursery School are planned carefully to meet the pupils needs through a cycle of assess, plan, do and review. 

Pupils may also be invited to join different intervention programmes to boost their progress in areas which they are finding more challenging.

Lessons are carefully differentiated to meet pupil needs and staff encourage all pupils to access a range of practical resources to support their learning.

The progress made by pupils is monitored via teacher assessment, half termly tests and end of year summative assessments. 

Parents are kept up to date with their child's learning by half termly topic sheets, messages on classdojo (app), parent's evenings, the website and school reports.

We operate an open door policy and encourage parents/guardians to pop into school to meet with staff when they have any queries.
