We have a Designated Teacher for Looked after Children Miss J Jones who works closely with the SENCO Mrs J Cartwright to ensure all teachers in school understand the implications for those children who are looked after and have SEN.
Children with additional needs, such as SEND or ‘Looked After’ Children are closely monitored and supported throughout their time at our school. Our SENCO regularly reviews the provision and achievements for our children with SEND to ensure the best outcomes for children and families. Working with our families is a specific part of this role and also the role of all staff at all levels; we see supporting children, through supporting their families and making them confident at each step of the way, as an essential part of providing quality provision.
At St. Joseph’s, we regularly review children’s academic progress and attainment, as well as the outcomes of all targets set on EHC Plans, SEN Support Plans and PEP’s. We also equally monitor how children achieve socially and emotionally to ensure that the needs of the ‘whole child’ are met.
