As with all other children in the school, the progress of children with SEND is assessed every 6 weeks. The school holds half termly pupil progress meetings which are attended by teachers, phase leaders, the deputy head and head. At these meetings any children who are considered to be off track in terms of meeting their targets are discussed. Following these meetings, the SENCo meets with class teachers to put together intervention groups for the following half term. If children are making good progress it may be felt that individuals need only a small amount of support for a period of time, whereas for other children the level of support may need to be more intensive and consistent. Every 6 weeks the SENCo will also contact teachers to discuss any possible referrals to different agencies which may be required or any additional resources which may need ordering.
