We endeavour to identify pupils’ needs as early as possible. We assess these children and set up programmes of work accordingly. We expect to work closely with parents.
New SEN guidelines
The new draft SEN guidelines define SEN as:
“A child or young person has SEN if they have a learning difficulty or disability which calls for special educational provision to be made for them. A child of compulsory school age or a young person has a learning difficulty or disability if they:
- Have a significantly greater difficultly or disability in learning than the majority of others of the same age: or
- have a disability which prevents of hinders them from making use of educational facilities of a kind generally provided for others of the same age in mainstream schools or mainstream post-16 institutions.”
If a learner is identifies as having SEN, at Baden Powell we aim to provide additional or differentiated provision that will enable them to overcome the barriers to their learning.
In addition to the above, we provide one to one support to identified pupils, run interventions during the school day to target groups of pupils who have been identified as requiring additional support and offer one to one mentoring sessions to support pupils with their emotional well being and their social development. An educational psychologist makes regular visits to school to provide advice to staff and support for any child with more severe special needs. We also work closely with behaviour specialists, speech and language specialists and have a school nurse who visits the school on a weekly basis.
