SEND and Wellbeing

Egerton Primary School SEND Overview, Information Report and Local Offer

WELCOME TO THE SCHOOL  SEND  and WELLBEING PAGE

At Egerton we have a whole school approach to supporting Special Educational Needs and Disability and use the guidance set out in The Equality Act 2010 and the SEN Code of Practice 2014.  We also support and promote Mental Health and Wellbeing and offer an Inclusive Education to all our pupils. We follow an ‘assess, plan, do, review’ model that involves all staff, pupils, parents and carers. Together we ensure early assessment and identification of needs and plan targeted support and undertake regular reviews, taking into account the views of children and their parents and carers. The process is explained in detail in our Egerton SEN Information Report, (attached below). This report forms our local offer. We have a dedicated SENDCO who works with outside professionals, parents and all staff. Together they plan to ensure that provision and support is in place for all learning, communication, physical, sensory and social and emotional needs.

 

Our SEND Team

  • All Staff 
  • Our Senco is Mrs Elizabeth Broadbent. email: senco@egerton.cheshire.sch.uk
  • Our SEN Governor is Mrs Elizabeth Elliott. 

We use the Cheshire East SEND Toolkit to ensure Quality First Teaching is in place to meet all needs, using appropriate assessments tools and recommended resources. We capture this information using Initial First Concerns Plan or SEN Support Plan.

 

This Toolkit is part of the Cheshire East Local Offer.  The Cheshire East Local Offer includes information about the support and provision that families can expect from a wide range of agencies for children and young people with Special Educational Needs and/or disabilities (SEND) from birth to 25 years old. https://www.cheshireeast.gov.uk/livewell/livewell.aspx

 

Regular staff training takes place to ensure that all staff are aware of early indicators and how to support.  We are an ‘Attachment Friendly’ school and in the last 12 months staff training has, in addition to teaching and learning training, included Autism Specific Training, Art Therapy, Supporting the Bereaved Child, Mental Health Training, Sad, Anxious and Depressed Child Training, Suicide Training, Whole School Approach to Emotional Wellbeing and Quality First Teaching to support SEND. Over the next year we also aim to achieve our ‘Dyslexia Accreditation Status’.

 

We are also part of the Emotionally Health Schools Project and together with the Egerton RESPECT culture offer an Inclusive Education.  We have a whole school approach to Wellbeing. All staff at Egerton promote the positive mental health and wellbeing of all our children and staff.  We have a Wellbeing Team in place. We undertake referrals and also plan specific support.  This approach is also embedded within school throughout our BRAVE Curriculum.

 

The Wellbeing Team

  • Mrs A Hooper ( Headteacher, Safeguarding and Wellbeing Lead)
  • Mr A Cornes (Deputy Head Teacher and Safeguarding Deputy and Wellbeing Deputy)
  • Mrs E Broadbent (Special Educational Needs and Wellbeing Co-ordinator)
  • Ms Ella Buchanan and Mrs Lesley Davies, Learning Mentors and Wellbeing Pastoral TAs.
