Special Educational Needs
The staff at Crabbs Cross Academy give careful consideration to the needs of pupils with SEND, making sure their development continues at an appropriate level and pace in line with their specific targets. The SENCo holds day to day responsibility for monitoring provision of children with SEND pupils, in line with the Code of Practice.
The Inclusion and SEND Policy, The SEN information Report and The Accessibility Policy, provide parents with the information and details about procedures and provision.
We work very closely with other professionals, such as Rosie Peake (Speech and Langauge Therpaist, based at school for half a day a week), Sheila Fannon (Educational Psychologist) and other specialists, such as specialist teachers from Chadsgrove (for Learning Support and Complex Communications).
If parents have any concerns, they can speak with their child's teacher, or can make contact with the SEND Team, Mrs Malone and Mrs Marston.
Below, are some useful websites for parents:
The Contact website is offering a range of free, virtual workshops for parents. These including sessions about sleep for young children, encouraging positive behaviour, and wellbeing for parents of children with additonal needs.
