Assistant Head Teacher and SENDco
Assistant SENDco and Pastoral Care
What should parents/ carers do if they think that their child has SEND or would like to discuss needs?
Initially it is always best to talk to the child’s teacher first as every teacher and teaching assistant is a teacher of SEND. The class teacher is responsible for keeping records on your child, creating action plans if needed, organise and run Wave 2 interventions and track their children’s progress, therefore is able to discuss in detail and explain what specific areas and targets your child is working on. If you have concerns they can be discussed either at termly Parent’s Evenings, myplan review or by arranging another formal appointment. (Teachers regularly liaise with our special needs and disability co-ordinator ( SENDCo) as appropriate). If you have further concerns in regards to specific difficulties or have questions regarding progress you could speak to the Special Educational Needs and Disabilities Co-ordinator team (SENDCo) or the Head teacher.
Information and Communication
We would like to welcome you to our Tewkesbury C of E SEND webpage. This page will help to inform you about our SEND provision here at Tewkesbury C of E Primary School.
Tewkesbury C of E values every child as an individual and wishes the best possible outcomes for all children. We strive to enable all pupils, regardless of need, to make the best possible progress. The school seeks to raise the achievement, remove barriers to learning and increase physical and curricular access to all through good quality teaching.
All children with special educational needs or disabilities are valued, respected and considered equal members of the school and sometimes additional support is needed to enable them to strive to make the desired progress.
Provision for each child is met on an individual basis. Some children will have support in class; others will be withdrawn for short periods to cover bespoke intervention programmes and/or individual work, while some work on a differentiated curriculum in groups.
