SEND at Richard Coates

At Richard Coates we are committed to ensuring that all children are supported to enable them to make good progress in all areas of their development.
We believe that early identification, assessment and monitoring of any additional need is vital in order to provide effective support and provision.
Mrs Storey is the Special Educational Needs and Disabilities Coordinator (SENDCO) and along with Mr Baines (Learning Mentor), they make up our Inclusion Team. This team is supported by our Teaching Assistants who assist with delivering interventions and supporting children across the school.
Once a pupil is identified as having SEND they are placed on the SEND register in one of three categories called 'waves' (please see quality first teaching for explanation).
Parent/carers of SEND pupils are invited into school three times throughout the academic year to discuss their progress, targets or concerns.
If you would like to discuss any SEND matters please contact Mrs Storey or Mr Baines on 01661 823167
