How does the school know if children need extra help and what should I do if I think my child may have special educational needs?

At St Cuthbert’s Junior School we use a range of indicators to help identify children with special educational needs.  This includes:

  • The SEND Code of Practice.
  • Ongoing in class assessment for learning through questioning, observing and marking work.
  • Pupils identified as working well below age related expectations.
  • Meetings with staff, the child (where appropriate), parents/carers and other agency support.

If a parent/carer is concerned about their child please come in and talk to us.  Your first point of contact is your child’s class teacher who will discuss concerns with the Special Educational Needs Co-ordinator (SENCo) alternatively you can arrange to meet with the SENCo directly.

Please read the  SEN Report to Parents  on what support is available at St Cuthbert’s Junior school

Who can I contact for further information?

Mrs Angela Treneman is the SENCo.   If you wish to discuss your child’s needs and/or arrange a visit please contact the school office on 01749 678066.
