Children who have Special Educational Needs will be placed on the SEN,D register. These children will have relevant equipment or resources in place to help them with their learning, if necessary, as well as a differentiated and appropriate level of work. Their progress will be monitored by the class teacher and interventions put in place where necessary. The Inclusion Manager (or SEN,D Coordinator) will also follow their progress, liaise with outside professionals and attend meetings. Our Inclusion Manager works closely with our Family Support Worker to create the best outcome for all children at our Partnership.


There is more information on the West Berkshire website in the Local Offer, stating what our schools have to offer for our SEN,D children.
