We have a Designated Teacher for Looked after Children, Judith Bulmer, who works closely with the SENCO to ensure all teachers in school understand the implications for those children who are looked after and have SEN. We actively work with all multi agencies and carers in order to support a LAC child with SEN ensuring appropriate information is shared with all parties in a confidential manner.
Looked after children with SEN are supported with SEN Support Plans which are shared with appropriate parties and reviewed in line with timescales. Looked After Children are also supported with a PEP. This reflects the nature of their need as well as the support in place.
Funding may be used to secure additional Educational Psychology time, additional support from services such as speech and language or the emotional wellbeing team for example. Where an EHCP assessment is needed this will be done in a timely manner.
