Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (S.E.N.D) 

Barr View Primary and Nursery Academy is a mainstream, inclusive school, where all classes are of mixed ability and teachers provide work that is suitably adapted to match the ability of each group.  This is achieved though the effective deployment of a wide range of staff, resources and materials.
If your child has Special Educational Needs or Disabilities (SEND) the school follows the Code of Practice to ensure that inclusion is achieved and progress is made.  Parents will be made aware if their child is placed on the ‘Special Educational Needs Register’ and will have the opportunity to meet with the class teacher and/or the Special Educational Needs Leader , to discuss the type of provision that can be put in place.
Depending on the level of support your child receives, they may have an Individual Education Plan (IEP) which sets achievable SMART (Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Relevant and Timely) targets to achieve progress and development.  Children play a central role in evaluating their own progress and helping to determine future targets.  The IEPs are reviewed three times a year and parents are invited and encouraged to attend these meetings.
Some children require the support of specialist agencies such as Educational Psychologist (EP), Speech and Language Therapists (SALT), Place 2 Be, Physiotherapists, Occupational Therapists (OT), Communication and Autism Team (CAT) and Pupil School Support (PSS).  If this is the case for your child, parents will be kept fully informed of any actions taken or planned. We at Barr View Primary,  pride ourselves on establishing and maintaining close communication and links between families, school and outside agencies making sure that your child remains the central focus of all our efforts.
The member of staff responsible for Special Educational Needs provision in school and support for staff and parents is: Miss L Campbell.
