I’m a SENCo at a secondary school and have created many resources for our year 7 and 8 children who were unable to reach the expected grades at ks2 and are therefore part of a small class of 15 children. I have also created many resources to support teachers differentiate for children with SEN and provide new strategies for them to trial

SEN Referral Pack

(0)
Everything I have created to make a clear, consistent referral process. 1. Referral process. This outlines the process of referring a child and what is done once a child is referred to the SEN department 2. Referral form. This is filled out and passed onto the SEN department. The referrer needs to identify why they are referring the child and what they have done within the classroom already to support them. The back in then completed by members of the SEN department as they are completing the observations, work reviews and requesting teacher feedback. 3. work review. This is a checklist of things to look for when analysing the quality of work students have produced. 4. SEN observation form. This is a tick list and notes document to make things easy to look at when observing a child. All documents are editable.

SEN student information request_ Round Robin

(0)
A form that I have created to send out to teachers of a student who has been referred to the SEN department. This is built on the main areas of need and will give you an idea of concerns about a particular student on a whole school level. It is quick for teachers to fill out as it is mainly tick boxes and comment columns but it means colleagues are commenting on the particular area you need them to.
Warning Cards and Reflection Card

Warning Cards and Reflection Card

(0)
Yellow- 1st Warning Orange- 2nd Warning Red- 3rd Warning Print these cards back to back. Students will recognise the colours and understand the closer they are getting through the warnings. It also reminds students of what is expected of them in the classroom. It also means students are crystal clear on the warning they are on and it’s also easy for class teachers to remember who they have given warnings to without writing student’s names on the board.

Literacy Cube_ Literacy Box

(0)
Literacy cube that I have created for students to have in front of them instead of a literacy mat. There is a copy of our marking policy on one square but you can easily delete this and add your own. Students love these as there is just enough information and they can turn the cube to the section they need. It has really helped them develop more independence. Information on faces are: - Marking policy - 3 things to do before you tell me you are finished - 3 things to do before you ask me for help - Key punctuation - Parts of speech (adjectives, verbs etc) - TiP ToP (paragraphs) All faces are easily adaptable. Cubes need printing, cutting and gluing. Card holds well. I have mainly used with bottom set year 7 but could work higher up.
Additional Adult Communication Record

Additional Adult Communication Record

(0)
I have created this sheet to go inside a plastic folder. Every teacher who has an additional adult will complete this so when the additional adult arrives in lesson, they can see some basic information about the lesson. The additional adult completes the bottom section within the lesson and so after the lesson the teacher can see anything that was not able to be communicated during the lesson. This can also be used as evidence for the amount of support some students may need. This has worked really well in a secondary school where there are lots of teaching staff and additional adults.
