SEND Coffee Morning

Dear Parents,


We are planning an SEND Coffee morning for parents to come in and speak with members of our SEND team in school on Thursday 14th December.


The Coffee Morning that we held in July last year was a great success and resulted in many different actions for different children and parents in the school. Referrals were made to our Speech and Language Therapist for some children, others were identified for dyslexia assessments, a block of work with a Psychotherapist, additional in-school interventions or small group Social Thinking Skills. We were able to feedback to class teachers about concerns raised, and those teachers have, in turn, observed children very closely and planned whole class PSHE lessons to begin to address friendship difficulties within their classes.


The coffee morning also contributed to our wider School Improvement Plan and to identifying the most appropriate training for staff members that is planned for this year. There is a list detailing the roles of our current SEN team attached.


This Term, we want to offer parents the opportunity to come in and raise any concerns they have about their children with members of our school team, a chance to talk to other parents who have children with a Special Educational Need, and a forum for parents to let us know how you feel about the support your child is getting and what we can do to improve our offer before our SEND Policy is updated next term.
