Annual SEN Report 2016-2017

 

 

Key Staff:

Special Educational Needs Co-ordinator (SENCo) – Mrs L. Howse

Special Educational Needs Teaching Assistant (SENTA) – Mrs S. Longstaff

Special Educational Needs (SEN) Governor – Mr M Smith

 

The number of pupils on the SEN Register is in line with national figures. The number of pupils with an Education Health and Care Plan (EHCP ) is below the national average. We have seen a fall in the number of pupils placed on the SEN register over the past year due to clearer identification and effectiveness of interventions.

Progress Measures

SEN children at Newburn Manor Primary School make expected or better progress from prior attainment at the end of KS1 to the end of KS2. Data for 2017 shows that SEN pupils have made slightly better than expected progress in reading, expected progress in writing and better than expected progress in maths.

The children who are currently receiving SEN support have made progress against their individual targets. We know this as three times per year the progress of children with SEN is reviewed and new targets set for the next term. Data and results from classroom assessments are also analysed. Parents are also informed of any intervention programmes their child is participating in and progress is regularly reported. The SENCo is available to meet with parents throughout the year.

 

Deployment of Staff and Resources

The deployment of staff is reviewed continually to ensure the right provision and intervention is provided for pupils to make the greatest impact on progress. During the year, staff have been employed to support SEN children in the following ways:

 

  • One-to-one provision for learning and behaviour needs

  • Additional small group support for English and Maths

  • Leading motor co-ordination programmes based on advice from Occupational Therapy Service

  • Delivering Speech and Language programmes to individual pupils from Speech and Language Therapy Service

  • Providing social and emotional support to individual pupils and groups of pupils

  • Providing one-to-one emotional support to individual pupils through the THRIVE approach

  • Carrying out phonic and reading interventions in KS1

  • Supporting pupils during less structured times of the day

  • Delivering intervention programs like Rapid Reading and Rapid Writing

  • Providing bespoke support to small groups of pupils and individual pupils to enhance progress in reading, writing and maths

     

    Teaching assistants do not solely support SEN children. The SENCo and SENTA have supported/assessed many other children during the year that are not categorised as SEN but have additional needs.

Work with External Agencies

During the course of the year we have sought advice from a number of outside agencies in order to support the children at Newburn Manor Primary School with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities, including:

  • Speech and Language Therapy

  • Occupational Therapy Service

  • Educational Psychology Service

  • Newcastle and Gateshead Children and Young People’s Service (CYPS)

  • Special Educational Needs Teaching and Support Service (SENTASS)

  • School Health

  • Specialist Paediatric Diabetes Nurses

  • Social Care

  • Community Paediatrics

  • Clinical Psychology

     

     

    Attendance

  • The attendance of SEN pupils is 96.5%

    The whole school attendance is 96%

    There have been no exclusions of any pupils.
