SEN & More Able Provision

"The SENCo – notably, also the school’s mental health lead - is ‘outstanding’ and ‘a fantastic addition’" ~ GOOD SCHOOLS GUIDE 2023

At The Children's House, we provide a holistic approach to individualised learning, and our SENCo, Laura, is also our More Able and Mental Health Lead.  In these three roles, she coordinates the individualised interventions provided to both support and challenge pupils, and has oversight for the overall wellbeing of all pupils, as these areas go hand in hand. 

Pupils with Special Educational Needs may be offered targeted interventions in a wide range of areas, from fine and gross motor skills, handwriting, emotional resilience to problem solving in Maths. Sometimes, these SEN interventions are short term, providing a little boost to build confidence or plug a knowledge gap, and in other situations may be longer lasting, throughout a term or two.  Our SENCo works collaboratively with teachers and parents to create targets for pupils and reviews these termly.  

On the More Able front, we are always looking to identify potential or capacity for high attainment in a particular area, be this academic, sport or the arts and are committed to nurturing and championing these strengths.  Whilst our teachers implement challenge for all students across the curriculum, More Able pupils will be set indivualised targets and offered more tailored stretch and challenge tasks. We also encourage our More Able students to become more aware of their potential using a range of meta-cognitive strategies, allowing them to truly flourish.

“The support Laura (SENCo) has provided for my daughter has completely transformed her. With Laura’s guidance, we devised a program to build her confidence. Laura approaches her work with understanding, kindness and patience. My daughter loves her and I am thrilled with all the success.”
