SEN & Disabilities

“The support for my child with additional needs has been unbelievable. The staff have helped my son in every possible way. They truly know him, understand his needs and keep me informed as his parent. He has grown in confidence and developed great bonds with the staff in his class.I truly believe and feel that this is an outstanding school, which provides excellent support in terms of special needs. I would surely recommend Harris Primary Academy Purley Way.” - Parent of a child with SEND needs

Here at Harris Primary Academy Purley Way we take students' individual educational needs very seriously. We understand that not every child learns in the same way, nor at the same pace. Due to this there are a number of provisions in place to help our children learn at the best of their ability.

Under the new code children with complex Special Educational Needs will be given an Educational Health Care plan (EHC). For some students this will mean being educated in a specialist provision. Where it is felt that these children can still be educated in a mainstream setting, the support outlined in the EHC plan will be provided by the Academy in collaboration with the Local Authority.

It is the responsibility of the Academy to provide for all other children with additional needs.

SEN will now be categorised under four main headings.

  1. Communication and Interaction - this includes speech, language and communication needs and Autistic Spectrum Disorder.

  2. Cognition and Learning - this includes specific learning difficulties.

  3. Social, emotional and mental health.

  4. Sensory needs - this includes visual and hearing impairments.

The code of practice explains that once a potential SEN is identified, four types of action are needed to put effective support into place. The four actions are;

  1. Assess; the class teacher and SENCO should clearly analyse a pupil's needs before identifying a child as needing SEN support.

  2. Plan; parents must be notified wherever it is decided that a pupil is to be provided with SEN support. The class teacher, the SENCO and parents should collaborate on problem solving, planning, support and strategies.

  3. Do; implement the agreed support and set a date for a review.

  4. Review; the effectiveness of the support should be reviewed in line with the agreed date.

Our Plan

For most of those that have SEN their needs can be met within the classroom with quality teaching and clear differentiation. For those that require additional support or a more specific type of support we will continue to involve outside agencies such as Educational Psychologists and Speech and Language therapists.

We have a number of specific Special Educational Needs Teaching Assistants. They will aim to help those within the classroom that need help in certain areas such as maths and literacy. This will be delivered on a half termly basis.
