Warwick Bridge Primary School

At Warwick Bridge Primary School we believe that within a happy, stimulating community where positive values are encouraged, everyone will develop a love of learning and a positive attitude towards education. Through these shared values each child will have the opportunity to become a responsible citizen in the future. An OFSTED inspection of the school was carried out in November 2019 and the school remains Good in all areas.

How will both you and I know how my child/young person is doing and how will you help me to support my child's/young person's learning?

Warwick Bridge School provides all parents and carers a detailed report of how your child is progressing three times a year. This is supported by three Consultation Evenings and adults have the opportunity to contact teachers by e-mail. All parents and carers can make separate appointments to see their child's teacher at any time of the school year. The school also offers regular Home/School meetings in order to pass on information about a range of activities and curriculum resources the school has. Each pupil from Years 1-6 will have a Pupil Planner which can be used to write down any homework activities. The Planner can also be used as a means for parents/carers to communicate with school by writing short notes.

What support will there be for my child's/young person's overall well being?

The pastoral care for all pupils is full and all-encompassing. We have regular visits from health professionals for all age groups and SEN pupils will be monitored through individual Pupil Education Plans. The school SENCO will monitor these plans on a half termly basis. We also ensure that we follow our Intimate Care Policy when needed along with Administering Medicines at School. The Head Teacher seeks to encourage good attendance by giving rewards for 100% attendance and letters of concern for those below 90%. The school's Behaviour Policy is a positive document and seeks to ensure that there are rewards for expected behaviour. Children have opportunities to express their viewpoints in questionnaires and PSHE lessons as well as class assemblies.

What specialist services and expertise are avaliable at or accessed by the setting/school/college?

Staff are all qualified to teach and deliver lessons in all areas. The school has been open after hours to uniformed organisations, Slimming World and local groups such as History Society, Good Companions and the Corn Mill.

What training have the staff supporting children and young people with SEND had? Are any being trained currently?

Staff take relevant courses in Safeguarding, First Aid, Prevent Duty and areas of the curriculum. Staff also have experience of Team Teach techniques.

All pupils have the opportunity to take part in a variety of lunchtime and after school activities. The school offers clubs in Chess and Games, Art, Running, Multisports, Dance and Drama. Parents are welcome to help out on trips and are actively encouraged to come in to school and listen to readers.

How will the setting/school/college prepare and support my child/young person to join the setting/school/college or the next stage of education and life?

We have a number of transition activities from EY to KS1 and KS1 to KS2. The Year 6 pupils also take part in a number of transition activities with all high schools in the area. We have visits from heads and Year leaders from these school at regular times of the year. Our year 5 pupils are also prepared for the Y7 transition by visiting local schools in good time before they move on.

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

Decisions are made by teachers in consultations with parents/carers and SENCO staff. We will also involve the Local Authority Educational Psychologist and other appropriate professionals as necessary. Parents and Carers are involved in every stage of the process. We will keep records to monitor the impact of these actions.

How are parents involved in the setting/school/college? How can I be involved?

Parents have a big say in how their child is taught in school. We hold regular meetings with the parents/carers of SEN pupils and provide any extra information as necessary. The school will also seek advice as necessary
