At Holy Trinity CE Primary School we recognise that each child has unique qualities and abilities. Children may have learning; physical, emotional/behavioural or social needs which may require special support or provision over the long or short term.
Their needs are identified and assessed according to the National Code of Practice and help is provided in school, or sometimes from outside agencies for those who need it. The school policy on pupils with special educational needs is available to parents from the school office.
September 2014 saw a new National Code of Practice introduced.
The new Code of Practice now includes the following changes:-
It now covers young people from 0 - 25
It now explicitly focuses on the importance of including both the young person and the parent in decision making
There is now an increased focus on co-operation between Education, Health & Social Care
Statments of Special Needs will now be called Education, Health and Care Plans (EHCP)
The time scale for Education, Health and Care Assessments is now 20 weeks as proposed to the previous 28 weeks.
The following diagram shows our whole school approach to Special Educational Needs.
If you have concerns about your childs rate of learning or development, speak to your class teacher or make an appointment to see Miss Parker - SENco and Inclusion leader.
