Special Educational Needs and Disabilities at Chiltern Primary School
Our Special Educational Needs Coordinator (SENCO) is Emma Reeve.
Mrs Reeve is responsible for this area of school provision and oversees that the needs of all SEND children are met. Mrs Reeve is also responsible for managing and overseeing that adjustments are made within the school when needed, and that parents and carers are kept informed about their child's provision. Mrs Reeve is also responsible for liaison between external agencies, partners and services that provide a wealth of support.
At Chiltern Primary School we strive to support all children to enable them to achieve in their learning. In order to do this, many steps are taken to support them through their learning journey. High Quality Inclusive Teaching is vital; however for some children there are occasions when further additional support may be needed to help them to maximise their potential for learning. At this point children might be identified as having a Special Educational Need (SEN). This will mean that the child receives extra support so that they can make progress in their learning.
We endeavour to provide an inclusive education for all children, the majority of this comes from within the school but sometimes we refer to outside agencies.
As part of our provision at Chiltern Primary School, we have a SEN and Inclusion team that provide targeted, specialist support to children. Our SEN and Inclusion team are:
- Mrs Reeve - SENCO
- Mrs Butler - Speech and Language Support Assistant
- Mrs Bennett - ELSA
- Mrs Chillmaid - Thrive Practitioner
- Ms Jackson - Home School Liaison Manager
- Mrs Ware - Nurture Practitioner
- Miss Weller - Nurture Practitioner
