The needs of every child are varied; each child is an individual. We have a well-established learning support system with specially trained staff working either alongside children in class or in small groups. We regularly monitor the progress of children receiving support. After full discussion with parents it may then be necessary for us to place a child on the SEN register, to provide tailored support through a Personal Plan. The level of support will vary from child to child depending on their need. Support, guidance and assessment can be sought from professionals to provide a holistic approach to your child’s learning and developmental needs. We are a wheelchair friendly school on ground floor level. If you would like any further information on this subject, then please review the school’s ‘Local Offer’ which can be found on our website. Alternatively please request a copy of our SEND policy along with any further guidance materials that we have. Please ring the school and we can send you copies of the appropriate policies.

What is a Personal Plan?
Here at Lanesend we have changed what was the old Individual Education Plan (IEP) to a document called a ‘Personal Plan’. If a child is placed on the Additional Educational Needs register, a Personal Plan will be drawn up. A Personal Plan is a document which explains everything about your child. It will detail any assessments that have been completed, diagnoses that have been made and list any professionals involved. Details of any external reports for example speech and language reports, Educational Psychology recommendations or Physiotherapy exercises to name a few will all be placed on the Personal Plan to implement. The Personal Plan will be reviewed every 6 weeks with progress comments and next steps. A copy of your child’s Personal Plan will also be sent home half termly via email. Every 6 weeks your child will also have a ‘Teacher Target’ in place. This is a short and achievable goal which your child’s class teacher has set as a focus. Once the six weeks are completed, this target will be reviewed by all relevant staff involved and either closed or changed for the next 6 weeks. Personal plans are provided on an electronic basis every 6 weeks to families. They will be emailed home on the email addresses you provide us. Our system for storing this information is called Edukey.
Health and Risk assessments are developed in partnership between school, parents & pupils. If required, we may contact relevant health care professionals who can advise on your child’s condition. The aim is to ensure that we know how to support your child effectively and to provide clarity about what needs to be done, when and by whom.
This document will be reviewed once every term (3 times a year) unless the child’s family provide additional information in writing to school detailing the change required. Your child's risk assessment will be stored on Edukey (online information system) and a copy will be emailed to you at the beginning of the year.
