The role of SENDCO at St Anne's is held by Mrs Emma Ward. Mrs Ward is also the Assistant Headteacher.
Please check out the parent page on SEND for helpful toolkits and timetables etc.that can be used whilst at home, for all children, so they can be reassured and be used as an offer of providing stability and guidance. If there are any queries then please do not hesitate to ring school for advice or contact Mrs Ward, via DOJO.
We are also very proud of OUR SEND Ambassadors who applied for their role and are willing to raise the profile of SEND within St. Anne's.
First point of contact for any concerns is your child's class teacher, as they know and interact with your child on a daily basis, and our door is always open offering support to parents and to be involved together in your child's learning. The school SEND and Well-being Team can offer individual support for you and your child in many areas, if there is anything that you are worried about we may be able to help you, or put you in contact with other professionals who can. Please message via Class Do Jo if you have any SEND concnerns that you would like to discuss with Mrs Ward.
Many steps are taken to support your child through their learning journey. Quality First Teaching is vital and we ensure that your child is supported; however for some children there are occasions when further positive support may be needed to help them to achieve their targets.
What is ‘The Local Offer?’
The local offer was first introduced in the green paper (March 2011) as a local offer of all services available to support disabled children and children with SEN and their families and is statutory under The SEN Code of Practice (2015). This easy to understand information will set out what is normally available in schools to help children with lower level SEN as well as the options available to support families who need additional help to care for their child.
What will it do?
St. Helens framework will allow the local offer to provide parents and carers with the information about how to access services in their local area, and what they can expect from those services. With regard to education, it will let parents and carers of young people know how schools and colleges will support them and what they can expect across the local setting.
