Getting support in place

All schools and settings should have a clear approach to identifying and responding to special educational needs. They will carefully monitor the progress of all children and young people.

There is a graduated approach to supporting children and young people.  Some may need SEN support (school or setting based support) and some may need a high level of support from an Education, Health and Care (EHCP) plan

  • How you can help at home
  • What additional help your child is getting in school
  • If your child is making adequate progress
  • What the next steps are
