What are the different types of support available for children with SEND in Vauxhall and who can get this kind of support?

Class teacher input via excellent targeted classroom teaching also known as Quality First Teaching.

For your child this would mean:

This type of support is available for all children in school as a part of excellent classroom practice.

 

Specific group work within a smaller group of children.

For your child this would mean:

This type of support is available for children with specific barriers to learning that cannot be overcome through Quality First Teaching and intervention groups.

 

Support provided through an Education, Health and Care Plan (EHCP). 

This means your child will have been identified by the class teacher/SENCO as needing a particularly higher level of individual and small group support which cannot be provided from the resources already delegated to the school.

Usually, if your child requires this high level of support they may also need specialist support in school from professionals outside the school. This may be from:

Local Authority central services such as the ASD Outreach Team or Sensory Services (for students with a hearing or visual need) and/or outside agencies such as the Speech and Language therapy (SALT) Service, Occupational Therapy service, Physiotherapy and/or CAMHS

What it means for you and your child:

This type of support is available for children whose learning needs are more severe, complex and potentially lifelong.

How can I let the school know I am concerned about my child’s progress in school?

How will the school let me know if they have any concerns about my child’s learning in school?
