SEND support

This page has been set up primarily to support parents of children who may need additional support in school. 

Below is a list of information websites, tips and resources to help you support your children with their additional needs, learning and self-esteem. Children have varying needs and there is no one size approach fits all. It is quite common for children to have additional needs that span all these areas, so select the resources that meet the needs of your child, without worrying too much about the label or category they fall under. Everyone has strengths and weaknesses and these SEND strategies will be beneficial to many children, whether or not they have a diagnosis.

The link below will open on your device as a word document. I will continue to update it regularly, so please let me know if there is something you feel that I have missed.

Support Resources for Home Learning

The EEF have some helpful resources to support parents at this website:

These resources outline straightforward ways in which you can identify learning opportunities in everyday routines and build them into your home life. There is also guidance for supporting your child’s behavioural, emotional and social needs at this time.

Have a nice holiday break!

 

Dear Parents and Carers,

As you will have seen from my last message, we have a number of optional educational activities for your children to do. For your information, over the Easter break, teachers will be spending their time with their families and will respond to the blog posts when they can. My Maths will not be checked over the break. After Easter, the blogs and MyMaths will be checked by your child’s class teacher on a daily basis.

Happy Easter to you all

Mr Fairclough
