If your child has a special educational need or disability, then the support that they will need in class will vary. The support provided to help children achieve the outcomes that have been set for them. This SEN support can take many forms, and could include:
- Extra help from a teacher or learning support assistant
- Additional materials, resources or equipment
- Working in a small group
- Observing your child and keeping records
- Helping your child take part in class activities
- Making sure your child has understood things by encouraging them to ask questions or to try something they find difficult
- Helping your child work with others, or play with others at breaktimes/lunchtimes
- Supporting your child with physical or personal care needs such as getting around the school safely, toileting or dressing
If you think your child has SENd, you should talk to your class teacher in the first instance. You might also need to talk to the SENCO.
If your child’s school thinks your child has SENd, they will begin to gather evidence such as reports about your child’s progress. If they decide to provide your child with support for their SEN, they must tell you.
