How we create an Individual SEND plan

The aim of our provision is to identify and assess the SEND and to plan the provision needed for each pupil to achieve his or her best at Wibsey Primary School.

Some SEND pupils may need extra support to achieve their learning potential. If this is the case then this is what we will do. We will arrange a meeting with the parents/carers and pupil (if appropriate) to discuss what is needed to put together a Wibsey Primary SEND Plan. Before the Plan can be drawn up the following information is gathered:

  • The pupil’s views and what he or she wants to achieve on their learning journey through Wibsey Primary.
  • The views of the parents/carers and what they would like to see as an outcome from their child’s time at Wibsey Primary.
  • A school based learning assessment.
  • Current and expected levels of attainment.

We will meet again and look at all this information and then, together, a SEND Plan will be drawn up. The SEND Plan will include outcomes, so everyone at the meeting will have something to do to help the young person on their learning journey. We will set a review date in the meeting. This will give us time to work together to achieve the agreed outcomes.

Some SEND pupils may need support from professionals outside of the school setting to achieve a successful learning journey. If this is the case then those views will be considered in drawing up a Wibsey Primary SEND Plan. This could include:

  • Parents/carers seeking medical advice about the young person.
  • School requesting Learning Support Services involvement with the young person.
  • School requesting advice from specialist disability teams.

This will mean there will be more people at the planning meeting, but everybody will have a responsibility to help the young person be successful on their learning journey.

Using Wibsey Primary SEND Plans we are able to develop support plans to help families who have asked for our help to support their child because he or she is failing to make good learning and/or social, emotional and behavioural progress. There are many reasons why this may be happening and we are able to offer advice or support to the family depending on their needs. This has been very successful.

EDUCATION HEALTH CARE PLAN (EHCP)

Education Health Care Plan will replace the Statement of Educational Needs. It will include in one document: Special education provision, health provision and social care provision.

If a child has a Statement of Special Educational Needs or an Education, Health and Care Plan, then we provide the support detailed in the plan.

Bradford Children’s Services SEN department will be responsible for the EHCP and reviews will be held at least once a year to ensure the pupil’s needs are being met.

COMMON ASSESSMENT FORM (CAF)

In order to help your son/ daughter achieve their learning potential we may ask your permission to fill in a Common Assessment Form (CAF). A member of staff, who is known to you, will ask you to provide information about your child and your family and in your presence will fill in the CAF. We will only include information that you tell the member of staff. The CAF will provide an overview of your family and will help us to decide together what we need to organise next. The CAF is a confidential document and will not be shared with anyone unless you have given your permission to do so.

Families who have been involved in the CAF process have found it to be beneficial. The agreed referral to appropriate agencies has helped them to support their child/ren within the home setting and to be successful at Wibsey Primary School.
