SEND Home learning resources
Please refer to our 'Home Learning' page for additional information.
Regardless of whether your child with SEND is at home or in school, we are doing our best to continue to deliver any additional support they need.
The class teachers are setting work suitable for your child’s learning needs on Seesaw and they are receiving feedback on this. You are able to add comments to this on Seesaw as appropriate.
If your child is at home and normally receives some interventions in school, we are exploring different ways to deliver the interventions to your child. Many of these will have already started by phone already. If your child is in school, they will continue to receive their usual interventions.
Please note that this is our best intention. If the impact of Covid-19 causes a reduction in staffing levels, the provision of interventions may have to be suspended for a period of time. We wish to avoid this if at all possible.
