SEND Remote Learning
During the global pandemic, we want to ensure that our remote and in-school learning offer meets the needs of all learners, including those with SEND. The government have stated that children with an Education Health Care Plan (EHCP) should attend school. Children who are vulnerable or cannot access learning remotely should also be offered a place to attend. At Hawkesley, we are able to offer this provision while school is not fully open to all pupils. We want to ensure that all of the children on our SEN register are still receiving the correct support to meet their needs and specific learning targets.
Provision for SEND Children attending school
For some identified Children on our SEND register, a place has been offered in school and the children have been placed in a bubble which best meets their learning needs. For some, this may be different to their usual class. This has enabled staff in school to provide additional support towards specific personalised targets, which can close gaps in learning and encourage rapid progress.
Children with more complex needs have been offered an attendance in school on a reduced timetable and are offered additional support by the SENDCo and learning mentor where appropriate.
For all children on the SEND register attending school, evidence-based interventions are timetabled throughout the week for children who are in school, led by the SENDCO, teaching assistants and the learning mentor. They are also provided with Quality First Teaching.
Provision for SEND children receiving a remote education at home
Class teachers are providing remote learning through class dojo for all children accessing learning digitally at home. Children with SEND are provided with additional learning resources to support them with this learning. Teachers provide specific feedback both on submitted work and during live lessons to support all children. For some identified children, a member of the inclusion team is providing 1.1 intervention over the phone. These are often, but not limited to, personalised targets as per their Needs Based Plan. Parents are also able to communicate difficulties that children are having, which the inclusion team can support through telephone tuition.
For those who cannot access remote learning through a digital platform, weekly packs of work are being provided alongside daily tuition. This includes some of our children on the SEND register.
Children with External agency involvement
To ensure that all waves of intervention are being met, children with external agencies are continuing to be assessed and supported with in school or virtually, dependant on the agencies COVID secure procedures. Reviews and TAC meetings will take place remotely through MS teams and will include parents and children.
