How do you identify SEND?

We use a variety of ways to identify if a child has SEND, for example;

  • Liaising with previous school
  • Child performing below age related expectations
  • Concerns raised by Parent/Carer informally or within Parent/Teacher Review Meetings
  • Through referral from weekly year team meetings or faculty meetings
  • Concerns raised by the teacher that behaviour or self-esteem is affecting performance
  • Liaising with external agencies e.g. Speech & Language Therapist/ Health Services
  • Health diagnosis through paediatrician/doctor
