Special Educational Needs

Hello, my name is Debbie Thomas and I am the Special Educational Needs Coordinator (SENCo) at Bodsham Church of England Primary School.

At Bodsham Church of England Primary School we strive to support all children to enable them to achieve and meet their full potential. In order to do this, many steps are taken to support them on their learning journeys.

Quality First Teaching is the foundation for all learning experiences. However, for some children there may be occasions where further additional support may be needed to help them to access a full academic and social experience and maximise their learning journey.

How we identify pupils who may require additional support

  • Concerns are raised by parents/carers, teachers, teaching assistants or the pupil’s previous school.
  • There is a lack of progress.
  • Attainment is below national expectation.
  • There is a change in the pupil’s behaviour.
  • A pupil asks for help.

One of my main roles is to liaise with staff and parents to monitor and plan further interventions, where necessary, and evaluate the impact of these. I meet regularly with a wide range of external agencies including Speech and Language therapists, Specialist teaching and learning service, Educational Psychology, School Nurses, and Early Help. These are all able to offer help, support and specialist advice.

Here at Bodsham Church of England Primary School we believe in working as a team, with the child at the heart of every decision we make.
