Special Educational Needs
'Ensuring every child achieves’
Sunnyside is committed to ensuring that every child has access to a provision that enables them to develop their abilities and ambitions; supporting them to grow as successful learners and members of our community. We recognise that pupils learn in different ways and at difference paces. We strive to celebrate this whilst supporting them to achieve.
At Sunnyside, we aim to support you and your child. Sometimes children need special support to give them an extra boost or to help them catch up with other children of the same age. They may need this support for a short time or a longer period, but during this time they will be part of our Special Educational Needs and Disability (SEND) Register and we will keep a close eye on their progress. Our children have individual learning plans which focuses upon what the next steps in learning are. Our children also have a one page profile, this supports transition as it gives strengths and development points, as well as their interests.
We use B-Squared as an assessment tool to track all the little steps your child makes whilst with us. Progress summaries are shared with parents regularly throughout the year.
If you are concerned about your child then please arrange a meeting with Mrs Atkinson, our school SEND Leader. This will include adaptations which can be made in class, a possible referral to an outside agency or intervention. Either way, she will be able to reassure you and point you in the right direction.
