Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND)
Mrs Michela Shields is the Special Educational Needs Co-ordinator (SENCo) for Key Stage 1 and 2.
Within the Code of Practice, the school has a policy for dealing with Special Educational Needs. This policy is available to parents on request.
Rose Wood is an inclusive school. We are committed to providing an excellent education for all the children who attend. In order to provide for each child’s needs, we have well trained teaching and support staff who support children in a variety of ways. This may be through a differentiated curriculum, intervention programmes for learning, behaviour programmes, and individual or small group help.
To view our SEND Policy and Information Report please visit our policies page here.
The school employs a specialist teacher (Mrs Croft) who provides assessment for pupils with specific needs. We have access to an Educational Psychologist (who provides advice and assessment) and other specialist schools e.g. Beverley School and Holmwood School.
We identify any difficulties as early as possible through our pupil tracking and assessment system, and we fully involve parents, welcoming their support.
We aim to offer pupils appropriate opportunities to develop their abilities. This is done through the curriculum, clubs and liaison with other schools.
Parents can discuss the possibility of an assessment of their child’s needs by contacting the Head Teacher or SENCo via the School Office.
