Mrs Martin, our SENCO, is also our Designated Teacher for Looked After Children. She works closely with staff in school to ensure all staff understand the implications for those children who are looked after and have special educational needs and/or disabilities.
Mrs Martin also works closely with the Virtual School and associated professionals (Social Services, Full Circle, Educational Psychology, Future Steps Occupational Therapy) to plan, deliver & review the impact of provision in place for looked after children with SEND. In addition to their Personal Education Plan, which is reviewed termly with the Virtual School, social worker and carer, looked after children with SEND also have a SEND Support Plan/EHCP (depending on their level of need) which focuses specifically on their identified special educational needs and the associated planned provision and outcomes they are working towards. This is reviewed according to our SEND policy & procedures.
