SENCO: Mrs Brooks

The aim at Perdiswell is to identify and support children with special educational needs at as early a stage as possible.

Initially a child encountering difficulties will be helped by adult intervention in the classroom. For many children this will be sufficient to overcome any problems. Where there are continued concerns the class teacher will inform parents and the Special Needs Coordinator (SENCO). Through consul- tation between the school, parents and specialist support individual education plans may be put in place to help the child. These are reviewed with the child and parents regularly to set appropriate pupil targets.

Local Authority Support Services that work with the school include:

  • Learning and Teaching Support
  • Behaviour Support
  • Educational Psychologist Service
  • School Health Service—including a school nurse
  • Family Support Service – All work done with these agencies is done in consultation with the child’s parents.
