Identification of SEND
It is important that children’s special educational needs/disabilities are identified at an early stage in their lives. The earlier that action is taken the more responsive the child is likely to be.
To identify or acknowledge that children at Conyers have SEND we use a number of indicators:
- Assessments from professional bodies
- Information from transferring schools
- Parental information
- School assessments
- Student information
- Testing data
The steps Conyers take if SEND is identified:
If SEND is identified the stages of action are:
Initial concerns expressed by parent, teachers, health or social services professional
SENCo gathers information, makes initial assessment and informs parents of outcomes
SENCo seeks further advice/ assessment from professional and outside agencies if required
If the young person is identified as SEND the SENCo will provide teachers, parents and the child with advice, strategies and provision suited to support their needs.
If you think your child has SEND you can raise concerns via your child’s form tutor, class teacher, year manager or contact the the SEND Support Team at email@example.com
