How does Pownall Green support pupils with SEND?
*All pupils at Pownall Green have learning targets for Reading, Writing and Maths. Pupils with SEN also have an Individual Education Plan (IEP) which records the additional provision and day-to-day strategies which support them. Where appropriate it also records individual targets relating to their specific areas of need). These are prepared and monitored by class teachers and reviewed every term. Strategies to help the pupil to meet those targets vary depending on individual need, but can include, for example, personalised in-class teaching and learning approaches, additional one-to-one or small group learning support from a teacher or teaching assistant (in or out of lessons), weekly intervention groups designed to develop motor skills, social communication skills or self-esteem. The school’s Provision Map lists the different support which pupils can access at our school.
*Pupils with disabilities are supported by a range of strategies, depending on their individual needs. These may include adaptations to equipment and resources, differentiated activities or adult support.
*At certain times of their school life, some pupils may need more expert support from an outside agency. Similarly, school staff may need to seek advice from outside agencies in order to ensure we are meeting a pupil’s individual needs. Outside agencies include Speech and Language Therapy, Occupational Therapy, Social Services, Educational Psychology, Healthy Young Minds Stockport, Learning Support Service, Behaviour Support Service, Sensory Support Service and the Primary Inclusion Team. If it is thought that your child may need access to an outside agency, either your child’s class teacher or the Inclusion Coordinator will discuss the matter with you and your consent will be sought.
*Some pupils have a very high level of SEND. Where this is identified, the Inclusion Coordinator can, with parental consent, request that the Local Authority carry out a Statutory Assessment. Through this process a pupil may receive an Education, Health and Care Plan (EHC plan).
