What is a SEN Register?
This is a list of all the pupils in the school who have special educational needs (SEN). This register makes it easier for the SENCo and staff to monitor those pupils who need extra help.
Why is my child on the SEN Register?
Any pupil on the SEN register has been identified as having a special educational need. Extra help will be given to these pupils to help them to make progress.
What does this mean for my child?
If your child is placed on the SEN Register, then they will start to receive extra help. This will be set out on a Individual Learning Plan or Support Plan, so that you can see what help your child is receiving and how often.
Will my child always be on the SEN Register?
Some pupils with significant needs will always be on the SEN Register because they will always need help. Other pupils may only need help for a short amount of time, and if they no longer need any help, then they will be removed from the SEN Register in discussion with parents/carers.
What if my child has additional needs but not a learning difficulty?
We also have an additional needs register. This enables staff to monitor children who are learning at Age Related Expectations and have a disability or other difficulty such as English as an additional language. This register is also used to monitor children whose learning or behaviour is a concern but they are not yet significantly behind their peers or having difficulties in school.
