SEND INFORMATION

This page contains information for parents and carers on how we meet the needs of children with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND) at Kingsway Primary and Nursery School. 

The SEND Code of Practice (2015) identifies SEND pupils as those with needs that are additional to and different from their peers. 

Contact Information

If you have any questions regarding your child’s current special needs, or you think your child may need additional support, please do not hesitate to contact either your child’s class teacher, or Mrs Ikin (the Special needs Co-Ordinator) via the school office.

Special Educational Needs and Disability (SEND) Local Offer

First Steps

Your first step is to talk to the school or early years setting, such as a day nursery or a preschool playgroup. Ask them what they think and tell them your concerns.

It is best to start with our child's teacher, key worker or turor. Sometimes that will be enough to put your mind at rest. To make sure there is enough time to discuss any problems it may be necessary to request a meeting.

You may wish to ask:

progress

Does the setting think my child is having any difficulties?

progress

Is my child at the same level as other children of his/her own age?

progress

Is my child already getting extra help? Is so, what sort of help is being offered?

progress

If after discussions have taken place you are happy - that is fine. If not, you may wish to ask to speak to the Special Educational Needs Coordinator (SENCO)

progress

If you do not understand what is being said - do not be afraid to ask questions.

 

 

Don't forget to share information

progress

Say when you first noticed the difficulty and if it is getting worse.

progress

Say if you have mentioned it to anyone before.

progress

Say if anyone else in the family has similar difficulties.

progress

Say how your child is at home. Are you doing anything to help at home? Can the setting suggeest any better ways to help?

progress

Do not forget if there are problems at home it could be affecting your child. It may help the school to know if a death or divorce or some other upset has affected your child. 

 

 

Remember

progress

You know your child better than anyone. Have confidence in yourself and be ready to share information.

progress

The teacher or keyworker sees your child in a different setting and has knowledge and experience that can be shared with you.

progress

Your encouragement and praise for your child is very important.

progress

Children pick up feelings from how their parents and teachers talk about them. Working together is important.

progress

Listen to what your child says - it helps them to think carefully and feel that people take notice of what they say

progress

Being informed and involved will help. Read leaflets, books and watch TV programmes about special educational needs.
