SEND Provision at St Merryn School

At St Merryn School we recognise the uniqueness of children and aim to provide a suitably broad and differentiated curriculum that meets the needs of everyone. At St Merryn we support children with medical conditions to ensure they have access to a fully inclusive education as outlined in our policy ‘Supporting children with Medical conditions’.

Examples of support we offer may include:

>Reading, writing or mathematics interventions

>Social, emotional or behaviour programmes

>Visual, speech and language, hearing or mobility support

Parents are welcome to make an appointment via the school office to meet with the class teacher or SENCO at any time to discuss pupil progress or how to best support their child at home.
The Special Educational Needs Coordinator (SENCO) is Mrs Alison Brook.

If you are worried that your child is not happy, struggling to remember facts, always in trouble or not making progress in reading, please speak to your child’s class teacher. If that is difficult, please ask to speak to the  SENDCO.

If your child does need extra help you will receive an appointment to meet your child’s class teacher to discuss what they find tricky and how we propose to help them. This is written down in a plan called an IEP (Individual Education Plan). You may also receive a letter asking for permission for your child to be part of a group. These groups run during the school day and give your child extra practice at whatever skill they need. We want you to know how your child is being supported and to help them in similar ways if you can.
