The SENDCO regularly reviews the progress and attainment of all children. Identification of a particular need may come from these reviews and/or discussions with class teachers.
The SENDCO works closely with teachers and parents to plan an appropriate programme of intervention and support.
The programmes of intervention and support for children reflect the need to access the whole curriculum.
Staff are trained with regard to SEND and specific training is offered according to need. The school nurse team are available to train staff for any specific medical need.
School can bring in outside agencies and specialists if necessary to assess children.
Each class benefits from a teaching assistant and we have a family support worker and learning mentor to support children and break down barriers to learning.
Several members of staff have received first aid and epipen/insulin/diabetic pump training. Further details of our management of children with medical needs can be found within the SEND policy below.
To find out in more detail about SEND provision at our school please read the SEND information report and our SEND policy below.

Family Information Network Directory (FIND)
The FIND database includes information about disabled children and young people up to 25 years old in Lancashire.
Families are invited to submit details about their disabled child or young person to the database, which is used to develop an overview of the needs of disabled children across the county to assist with planning services.
The FIND service is strictly confidential - no individual information about any children or their families is shared with anyone.
Every family recorded on the FIND database receives a quarterly newsletter free of charge to help them keep informed about services and support which may be relevant.
