If your child is on the SEN register it means they have a special educational need. A special educational need is defined by the 2014 code of practice as;
has a significantly greater difficulty in learning than the majority of others of the same age, or
has a disability which prevents or hinders him or her from making use of facilities of a kind generally provided for others of the same age in mainstream schools or mainstream post-16 institution
At St. James’ every child with a special educational need has a one page profile detailing information about how adults can help them, their strengths, need and worries. You can find an example of our ‘one page profiles’ here.
In addition to this if you have a child with SEN who is not making sufficient progress they will also have an outcome focused action plan which will be reviewed with the child and the child’s parents termly.
