4. How does the school know if my child needs extra help?


We know when children need help if:

  • Concerns are raised by parents/carers, external agencies, teachers, or the child’s previous school, regarding a child’s level of progress or inclusion
  • Screening, such as that completed on entry or as a result of a concern being raised, indicates gap in knowledge and/or skills
  • Whole school tracking of attainment outcomes indicates lack of expected levels of progress
  • Observation of the child indicates that they have additional needs in one or more of the four broad areas of need:
  • Communication and interaction

  • Cognition and learning

  • Social, mental and emotional health

  • Sensory and/or physical

  • A child asks for help
