4. How does the Academy assess children and young people with SEN?


Pupils are identified as being in need of extra provision in a variety of ways:


  • Screening

 Key Stage 1 information regarding SAT levels is collated and distributed to teaching staff . All pupils on entry to Y3 will have standardised assessment in single word reading, reading comprehension, spelling , handwriting and Numeracy . Some pupils may require further assessment to support progress. Support for developing literacy and numeracy is then determined.


  • Class Teacher Request

 Staff who have concerns regarding a student may pass concerns on to the Inclusion Manger/SENCO .


  • Parent/Carer Request

 Parent/Carer requests can be made at any time by phone, e mail or letter to the SENCO.
