We have a Designated Teacher for Children Looked after with SEND, Miss Heather Whitfield (Head of School), who works closely with the SENDCO Mrs A Addison, to ensure all teachers in school understand the implications for those children who are looked after and have SEND.
Provision for children looked with SEND are managed within school with careful liaison with the Virtual School Service. Outcomes for their provision are linked to outcomes on their EPEP plan and this is funded through the use of Pupil Premium Plus funding.
Children who are ‘Children Looked After’ by the local authority (in care) are monitored and supported by the Headteacher and SENDCO and the designated safeguarding team. Our provision, additional resources, teaching and outcomes are reassessed regularly to ensure that these vulnerable children are both happy, settled and making good progress.
The designated safeguarding team liaise with social services and attend all ‘Looked After Reviews’.
