Who is responsible for teaching and monitoring children with SEND?
At St Edward’s CE Primary School all teachers are responsible and accountable for the progress and development of all the children in their class including those with special educational needs or disability. High-quality teaching which takes into account the individual needs of all children is our first step in responding to children who have special educational needs or disability. Teachers will use a range of strategies to ensure that children keep up rather than catch up. There will however, be times when the curriculum is differentiated for individual children to meet their particular needs.
St Edward’s CE Primary School has a Special Educational Needs and Disability Co-ordinator (SENDCo) Mrs Kate Varley. She is responsible for the management of provision and support for identified children with SEND. She also guides and supports teachers and teaching assistants to enable them to provide appropriate assessment and focused provision for children in their class with SEND. She can be contacted by emailing the school SENDCo@condoverschool.co.uk or by telephoning the school to make an appointment on 01743 718462.
