St Elizabeth’s Catholic Voluntary Academy School Special Educational Needs and Disability (SEND) Information Report 2021-2022
Roles and responsibilities:
As SENCo I co-ordinate all of the specific provision that is put in place to support children with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND).
I am responsible for writing and implementing the Special Educational Needs Policy.
I work with class teachers, providing advice and support. Together we monitor pupil’s progress and arrange further or different provision if progress is slower than expected.
I also liaise with a range of external agencies who can give us specialised advice and support.
If you have any concerns about any SEN matter, please contact me. You can ring the school office on 01773 822278 to arrange an appointment.
We have written how we can provide help and support for our children with Special Educational Needs, this is called our “School Offer” and you can click on the questions below for more information.
