Oustanding SEND Support Plan and Whole School Rationale

Oustanding SEND Support Plan and Whole School Rationale

This is an excellent resources for SENCO's and Heads who need to demonstrate a system to show how all universal services are working together to deliver the outcomes of all children who have an EHCP or awaiting assessment for one . One of the key features identified in the SEND code of practice 2015 is working together across education, health and social care for joint outcomes. As a school it is required that we should ‘develop a joint understanding of the outcomes that their local population of children and young people with SEN and disabilities aspires to, and use it to produce a joint plan, which they then deliver jointly, and review jointly.’ The legal framework in relation to the code of practice indicated that under Section 25 of the Children and Families Act 2014 local authorities (Schools) should ensure integration between educational provision, health and social care provisions, where this would promote wellbeing and improve the quality of provision for disabled young people and those with SEN. (page 38 of the Code of Practice). As a result of the legal framework and Ofsted recomendation it was decided to devise a universal system where all provision / outcomes are identified and specific to the individual children at ………. School. Having discussed this with external professionals and researched what is identified as outstanding practice, I began to create a system that is universal with all stakeholders and acknowledges the views of the child and how to best support them. In reflection to the above a new whole school framework has been develop and I have worked closely with the Head of Care, Chair of governors, Educational Psychologist, LA SEND Department, …….. (Upper School SENCO), ……..(Team Teach Lead), ……. (PSA) to produce a system called (Individual SEN Support Plan).

A parent's guide to reading and writing -  early years, primary and secondary.

A parent's guide to reading and writing - early years, primary and secondary.

This is a PDF of my book 'Teach your digital native to read and write: A guide for parents'. It is also available in paperback and for Kindle from Amazon. Young people today are known as ‘digital natives’. Constant exposure to digital devices is even changing the way that they think, learn and relate to others. Digital technologies mean we do, in fact, engage with the written word more than ever before, yet reading and writing can lack relevance in young people's lives. Many parents want to support their child with learning to read and write but are unsure where to start. Which literacy skills are needed in our digital age? How can you tempt young people away from their digital devices to learn these? How do you ensure digital devices are helping rather than hindering learning? All of these questions and more are answered in 'Teach your Digital Native to Read and Write', an essential guide for any parent or carer wanting to know how to support their ‘digital native’ to read and write in the 21st century. • Are e-books as useful as paper books? • How can I support my child with the phonics being taught in school? • Are handwriting and spelling still necessary skills in the era of digital devices and predictive texting? • How can I support my older child who is finding literacy difficult or a dyslexic child? • How can I support my child with reading and writing tasks? • And is it even possible to make reading as engaging for my child as computer games and mobile phones? This is a must-have book for any parent wanting to support their 21st century child to develop effective literacy skills needed to succeed academically, personally, socially and in employment. Overview of contents: Chapter One: Digital Natives Chapter Two: What is literacy? Chapter Three: Pre-reading skills Chapter Four: Phonics Chapter Five: After Phonics - Becoming a Skilled Reader Chapter Six: Handwriting Chapter Seven: Spelling, Punctuation and Grammar Chapter Eight: Writing - the Bigger Picture Chapter Nine: Supporting your Older Child or Teenager Chapter Ten: Digital Literacy The author, Victoria Honeybourne, has a background in education and is a senior advisory teacher with a local authority. She has spoken at national events and has written several other education books
