5. What support is available for a child with SEN?


  • The teacher has the highest possible expectations for your child and all pupils in their class.
  • All teaching is built on what your child already knows, can do and can understand. 
    • Different ways of teaching are in place, so that your child is fully involved in learning in class. This may involve things like using more practical learning.
    • Specific strategies (which may be suggested by the SENCo) are in plac·e to support your child to learn.
    • Your child's teacher will have carefully checked on your child's progress and will have decided that your child has a gap or gaps in their understanding/learning and needs some extra support to help them make the best possible progress.
