Progress Measures

Historically, 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 2019 shows that SEN pupils have strong progress in Reading, Writing and Maths, making significantly more progress than SEND pupils nationally and more progress than non-SEND pupils within the school context.

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 one-to-one emotional support to individual pupils
  • Providing small group intervention for emotional support through our Early Bird ACORNS sessions
  • Lego Therapy sessions to develop social communication skills such as sharing, turn-taking, following rules and problem-solving.
  • Carrying out phonic and reading interventions in KS1
  • Supporting pupils during less structured times of the day
  • Delivering small group handwriting and fine motor skills intervention
  • Bespoke small group intervention for social, emotional and behavioural needs
  • 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 95.2%
  • The whole school attendance is 96%
  • There have been 2 fixed term exclusions during 2018-19.
