Lunsford: a journey of success and excellence

Home Page

SEND

At Lunsford we strive to support and value all children to enable them to achieve well at school. We recognise that each child is on their own individual learning journey and we support them in their learning as well as socially and emotionally.

 

The SEN Information Report and SEN policy outlines how we identify children with special education needs (SEN) and the provision, interventions and support available within the school. It provides details of training staff have received to deliver SEN provision and interventions and describes how we assess and monitor pupil’s progress and communicate with parents.

 

Section 11 provides links to helpful websites and resources linked to areas of need within the school.

 

The Whole School Provision Map of Interventions provides a detailed overview of the comprehensive provision within Lunsford. It is structured into the four broad areas of need identified within the SEN Code of Practice 2015:

  • Cognition and Learning
  • Communication and Interaction
  • Physical and/or Sensory
  • Social, Emotional and Mental Health needs.

 

This provision is described according to waves of intervention:

  • Wave 1 describes quality first teaching (teaching within the classroom)
  • Wave 2 details group interventions and catch-up programmes
  • Wave 3 describes individual targeted support for SEN pupils.

 

The special education needs co-ordinator (SENCO) at Lunsford is Mrs Collins. Mrs Tina Collins' contact details are: senco@lunsford.kent.sch.uk or you can contact her on 01732 843352. Our Family Liaison Officer (FLO) is Mrs Katie Till. You can email Mrs Till on Fflo@lunsford.kent.sch.uk or call her on 07833 584920.
