SEND stands for Special Educational Needs

Our SENCO, Miss Porter holds the National Award and is responsible for ensuring that children with special educational needs are identified and supported. She liaises with outside agencies, has oversight of assessment, plans interventions and puts together personalised learning plans to enable every child to flourish and learn.

The school works with a number of outside agencies such as the Dyslexia Outreach Team (DOT), County Inclusive Support Service (CISS), our linked Speech and Language Therapist, Occupational Therapists, Play and Art Therapists, a linked Educational Psychologist and the Hearing and Visual impairments team.

Please do not hesitate to request a meeting via the school office if you have concerns about your child’s learning and progress. It is always good to talk to your child’s class teacher first but Miss Porter is always happy to arrange a phone call or meeting where possible. You can also send her a direct email using the following address; sendco@shotley.org.uk
