Special Educational Needs and Disability Support at Chambersbury
At Chambersbury, we believe that every child should be able to learn in a safe and supportive environment that allows them to realise their potential. We provide a wide range of support based on children's individual needs.
Occasionally, your child's class teacher might feel that your child needs a little extra help with their learning. Please don’t worry if this happens; there are lots of highly skilled people in school and we will do all we can to make sure you and your child are happy here. We recognise that every child is a unique individual and it is our responsibility to ensure that every child is helped and encouraged to achieve to the best of their ability.
If you have any questions or queries about Special Educational Needs at any point during your child’s time at our school, please speak with your child’s class teacher first. They will discuss any concerns with Ms Cooper (SENCo), the member of staff responsible for ensuring that your child is able to achieve to the best of their abilities.
Our SEN Information Report tells you all you need to know about how we support children with SEN. The Easy Read version has the same information in a more accessible format.
Our Access Plan shows how we are making our school more accessible for people in our community with disabilities.
First of all, your child's teacher will make any reasonable adjustments they need to in class. This might include some small group or individual learning. Lots of children need some extra help at times in school. We will talk with you if we feel that your child would benefit from some extra support.
We might also talk to some other professionals to get advice and support. We will always ask your permission.
Your child's teacher will work with you to develop an individual learning plan for them and this will be discussed at Parents' Consultation Day.
Ms Cooper is the SENCo (Special Educational Needs and Disability Co-ordinator) and she will be available to meet with you at parents' evening to talk about how we can work with you and your child. You can make an appointment to speak with her at any other time by calling the School Office.
We will keep talking with you, and working with other professionals, to make sure we are doing everything we can to break down barriers to learning so that your child achieves all they can.
Below are some links that you might find useful when you're looking for support for your child with SEND. Whilst they have a lot of useful information, please remember that they link to external organisations and we cannot be responsible for their content.
If you are uncertain about anything, ask to speak with the SENCo.
