Special Educational Needs and Disability (SEND)
The William Hogarth School is an inclusive school and we make every effort to ensure children with Additional Needs are fully included and take part in all aspects of learning. We use the ASSESS, PLAN, DO, REVIEW cycle. And follow the guidelines set out in the Special Educational Needs and Disability Code of Practice: 0- 25 Years
Our policies adhere to The Special Educational Needs and Disability Act 2014
We recognise that all children have different and varying individual strengths and needs, and we work hard to support their learning and keep up to date with latest research and training. All children are welcome in our school community and their individual needs are celebrated.
Class teachers work closely with the school’s Special Educational Needs and Disability Co-ordinator to identify any pupils who may need extra support in the classroom. We use various classroom based interventions to support children with additional needs and differentiate as the first step. Our Teaching Assistants take individual or group interventions throughout the day and are trained in Fishers’ Family Trust Reading, Phonics, Lego Therapy, Occupational Therapy Programmes and Speech and Language Groups.
We may seek further specialist support and advice from Occupational Therapy, Speech and Language therapy, Behaviour Support and CAMHS when a child’s additional needs require more specific support. We also have access to advice and support from the Hounslow Educational Psychology Service and the SENSS advisory teachers at Hounslow.
Supporting parents of children with Additional Needs is very important to us and are readily available for meeting with parents who have any concerns about their child’s needs.
There are children with Education, Health and Care Plans in our school. If pupils are identified as having significant difficulties and will need additional support, with parents’ backing, we will begin Statutory Assessment of Special Educational Needs Process, possibly resulting in an Education Health and Care Plan issued by the Local Authority.
