At Moorside Primary, we currently have 39% of our pupils on the SEN register however this is a fluid list and changes throughout the year as needs are met and others are identified. At present, we have five children with an Educational Health and Care Plan (EHCP) and a further applications in the process of an EHCP. We have experience of supporting children and young people with a range of needs, including:
- Speech, language and communication needs
- Autistic Spectrum Disorder
- Gross and fine motor difficulties
- Sensory processing difficulties
- Social, emotional and mental health needs
- General and specific learning difficulties
- Down’s Syndrome
The school provides data on the levels and types of need to the Local Authority. This is collected through the school census.
In our School, the greatest areas of need are Communication and Interaction and Cognition and Learning. Currently, 39% of children in our school have an area of need from Reception to Year 6. 33% of this is in relation to Communication and Interaction. 33% in relation to Cognition and Learning, 26% in relation to Social, Emotional and Health Difficulties and 2.2% have a Sensory or Physical Difficulty. Note that there is an overlap of needs for many of our SEND children.
We also have staff who have undergone training to deliver Nurture Group provision which aims to deliver short-term focussed intervention for children with areas of difficulty which may create barriers to accessing learning within a mainstream classroom.
