How does All Saints’ CE Federation organise support for students with SEND?
Mr Rennardson (SENDCo) works closely with the staff at All Saints’ to identify students with SEND and then co-ordinates all provision and support for these students within the school.

Support needs and provision will be decided upon in consultation with the SENDCo, Parents / Carers and students. All support will be tailored to meet the needs of individual students.
Who provides support for the students?
‘High quality teaching that is differentiated and personalised will meet the needs of the majority of children and young people.’ (SEND Code of Practice 2014: 1.24) Some students may require additional support and this will be provided by Learning Support Assistants or through external agencies of the Local Authority.
How will I be informed about my child’s progress?
All student’s progress is monitored, tracked and reported back to parents regularly throughout the year. This will take the form of parent’s evenings, annual reports, and termly SSP (School Support Plan) review meetings with the SENDCo and class teacher (for those children on the SEN Register).
Students with a Statement or EHCP will have an annual review meeting which parents / carers will be invited to attend and contribute to.
