Welcome to

St Lawrence

Catholic Primary School

"Our school is a place where we all come together as one community to learn, have fun and make lasting friendships all under God's love and care."

How is the decision made about what type and how much support my child will receive?

  • Children’s progress is regularly reviewed at St Lawrence.Where teachers and support staff identify that a child is not making the expected progress a decision about appropriate support and catch-up programmes is made with the class teacher, support staff and SENCO.

  • The type and amount of intervention provided will be decided based upon a child’s individual needs, expected outcomes and, where appropriate, advice received from supporting agencies.

  • For each intervention there are specific screening assessments or criteria that identify if a child is suitable for the program.

  • Targets are set for each intervention/support program and outcomes for individual children are assessed and reviewed every half term with the SENCO and the member of staff delivering it.This information along with class teacher’s pupil progress data go together on a provision map to inform future support.

  • The school’s decision to make an application for a statutory assessment for an EHC Plan will usually take place at a ‘multi-professional progress meeting’, if it has been agreed that a child needs are not able to be met without a particularly high level of individual support, which cannot be provided from the resources and/or budget available at the school.

For a child with an EHC Plan, the type and level of support needed will be detailed in their plan.
