Special Educational Needs

Our SENCo Ms Shannon has undertaken the National SENCo Award (Postgraduate Diploma in Special and Inclusive Education). She works closely with our committed staff team and specialist services to ensure that children get the academic and pastoral support they need to reach their full potential.

At Plumpton School, we pride ourselves in creating an Inclusive learning environment and providing appropriate provision for all children to succeed. Class teachers are responsible for the learning and progress of all children in their class. This entails meeting children’s needs through quality first teaching, personalised planning and resourcing and differentiation through levels of support, expectations of outcome, resources or activity. Some children may require extra support or provision. The different levels of support are set out below:

6. Specialist placement

5. EHCp/statement 

4. Continued specialist support/plan

3. Specialist intervention

2. Intervention; support

1. Concern; monitor; track

*High quality 1st teaching 

Please read our SEN Information Report and SEND policy, and if you would like more information. Please contact Ms Shannon via the school office 

Ms Shannon works 1 day per week as our SENCo, so for urgent queries please contact the Head of School Mr Hughes, please go through the office.
