Special Educational Needs and Disabilities
School SENDCo – Jane Govender
SEN Governor - Jo Black
All children may experience some difficulties in learning from time to time during their school life. We aim to provide equal access to the whole curriculum for all children including those with special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEND).
Provision for all children starts with quality first teaching but some children may benefit from specific targets, identified on an IEP (Individual Education Plan), to help them progress and reach their full potential. These IEPs are shared and discussed with parents on a termly basis and include suggestions for how you can support your child at home. Depending on the identified need, extra support may take place in class, in a small group or on an individual basis. On occasion, additional support is sought from an external agency such as, Family and Well Being service, Specialist Teacher advice or the Educational Psychology Service.
Our aim is that all pupils, regardless of their specific needs, enjoy their time at Pendle and make the best possible progress in school.
If you have any concerns regarding SEN and your child’s needs please speak to their class teacher or Mrs Govender at any time during the term.
