If you’re worried about your child’s progress at Thomas Jolyffe, please speak to their class teacher or alternatively
every school (and nursery) has a special educational needs coordinator (SENCO).
SENDCO at Thomas Jolyffe is Mrs Wright (firstname.lastname@example.org) and Assistant SENDCO is Mrs Allen. (email@example.com).
Both are trained to identify children with special educational needs and make sure they get all the help they need.
If your child has a medical condition, please contact Mrs Wright to see how we can support them in their learning and social interaction.
Independent, impartial advice and support is available from Warwickshire SEND Information, Advice and Support service (SENDIAS). You can speak to a trained, independent adviser by calling the Contact helpline.
After these initial stages, if you meet with Mrs Wright (SENCO), you will agree on the best plan of action. You’ll also decide if any other information is needed and if other professionals should be involved.
Reviews check your child’s progress and plan next steps. If they are making progress, expect to continue assessing, planning, doing and reviewing.
The SEN support put in place will meet the needs of many children. However, if your child has SEN support and has not made the progress you expect, Mrs Wright may discuss the necessity of a needs assessment. This is called an Education, Health and Care (EHC) assessment. Find out more about EHC assessments.
