At Pathfinder Church of England Primary School, we believe that every child deserves the opportunity to succeed in school.
We work as a team to ensure that all pupils have the environment they need to achieve. Every member of staff is responsible for SEND provision in our school, the teachers, LSAs, midday assistants and office staff all play a part in providing learners with SEND quality first teaching and inclusion, liaising with the SENDCo and parents, to form a team around the child.
We aim to provide relevant training to staff to support the children in our care. We work closely with outside agencies to support the children in our setting.
If you have concerns about your child in relation to special education needs, you should share these concerns with the Class Teacher in the first instance. The class teacher will then discuss these concerns with the SENDCo and the Headteacher as part of pupil progress meetings.
All teachers engage in the Assess, Plan, Do, Review cycle half termly, and meet regularly with the SENDCo to discuss this and then with parents, where provision is shared.The role of SENDCo is shared as follows:
