In school, we will use a SEN Support Plan or Behaviour Plan to set targets and review progress. SEN Support Plans focus on removing/limiting the barriers which are preventing progress academically, for example, supporting a child with working memory issues so that they have strategies to help them access tasks. These plans are reviewed twice a year in a child-focused meeting with the child, parents, teacher and Inclusion Manager/SENCo. The meeting will assess the progress that child has made against small step targets and set new targets as appropriate. Professional reports are used to inform the small step targets. The teachers also hold parents evening twice a year.
If your child has complex SEND, they may have an Education, Health and Care Plan (EHCP) therefore a formal annual review will take place to discuss your child’s progress and a report will be written. This can also be done at a six monthly interim review if changes to circumstances occur or concerns arise.
Children that are working at SEN support or have an Education Health and Care Plan (EHCP) will be on the school’s SEN register. Children may move off the SEND register when they have ‘caught up’ or made sufficient progress.
