How does the setting/school/college know if children/young people need extra help and what should I do if I think my child/young person may have special educational needs?

At Broadmead Lower School children are identified as having SEND through a variety of ways including the following:-

  • Liaison with pre-school/previous school
  • Child performing below age expected levels
  • Concerns raised by parent
  • Concerns raised by teacher for example behaviour or self-esteem is affecting performance
  • Liaison with external agencies e.g. Educational Psychologist
  • Health diagnosis through paediatrician


  • Talk to us – contact your child’s class teacher first. Then if necessary contact the SENDCo (Special Educational Needs and Disabilities Co-ordinator) or Head Teacher.
How will early years setting/school/college staff support my child/young person?
  • Our SENDCo oversees all support and progress of any child requiring additional support.
  • The class teacher will oversee, plan and work with each child with SEND in their class to ensure that progress in every area is made.
  • There may be a Teaching Assistant working with your child either individually or as part of a group if this is seen as necessary by the class teacher. The regularity of these sessions will be explained to parents when the support starts.


  • The class teacher will meet with parents at least once a term to discuss your child’s needs, support and progress.
  • For further information the SENDCo is available to discuss the support in more detail.
How will both you and I know how my child/young person is doing and how will you help me to support my child's/young person's learning?
  • The class teacher monitors each child’s progress and discusses with the SENDCo and the parent/carer.
  • The class teacher agrees targets with the parent/carer and records these on a ‘My Support Plan’ (MSP).
  • Every term the targets are reviewed and the child’s progress is discussed with the parent/carer.
  • Every half term pupil progress meetings are held with the Head teacher to discuss the children’s progress and what support is needed.
What specialist services and expertise are avaliable at or accessed by the setting/school/college?
  • We work closely with outside agencies; we phone or email for advice and make referrals as needed.
  • We have access to a range of agencies including Speech and Language, Occupational Therapy, Educational Psychology Service, CAMH (Child and Adolescent Mental Health), CHUMS (Child Bereavement Trauma and Emotional Wellbeing Service), Child Development Centres, CDC Centre, School Nursing Service.
How will my child/young person be included in activities outside this classroom including school trips?
  • Pupils with SEND are encouraged to participate in all school activities.
  • Access to after school clubs is provided and support is given by trained activity leaders.
  • School trips are accompanied by a high ratio of adults to children.
  • Parent/carers are invited to accompany school trips if appropriate.
How will the setting/school/college prepare and support my child/young person to join the setting/school/college or the next stage of education and life?
  • We encourage all new children to visit the school prior to starting. For children with SEND we encourage further visits to help them to be familiar with their surroundings. We may also visit them in their current school.
  • We liaise closely with staff when receiving and transferring children to different schools ensuring all relevant paperwork is passed on and all needs are discussed and fully understood.
How are the setting's/school's/college's resources allocated and matched to children's/young people's special educational needs?
