Welcome to the SEND section of our website. My name is Ms Choo Chean Laband and I am the SENCO across the Neatishead, Salhouse & Fleggburgh Federation.
At Fleggburgh Primary, pupils with SEND make up approximately 28% of our school. We are an inclusive school and we offer a range of provision to support all children, including those with SEND. How we achieve this is described in detail in our SEND Policy & Information Report (below) but please feel free to make an appointment to speak to me or Mrs Church if you would like to find out more.
I can be contacted via the school office or via email: firstname.lastname@example.org Also on this page you will find information about the Norfolk Local Offer & services that are available for parents and carers of children with SEND.
Your child’s class teacher will always be your first port of call should you have any concerns about your child’s learning. Other key people in relation to SEND are:
Mrs Julie Church – Executive Headteacher
Mrs Ingrid Rounce: Head of School and designated teacher for Looked After Children (LAC)
Ms Choo Chean Laband – SENCO
Mrs Sarah Organ – SEND Governor
We are also supported by a range of different agencies. There is more information about this in our SEND Policy & Information Report.
Our SEND Policy sets out our vision for SEND whereas the SEND Information Report details how our policy is put into action. We have designed our Policy & Information Report to be as user friendly as possible. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.
At Neatishead, we use a website called Provision Map. Children that are on our SEN Register have a SEN plan that is regularly reviewed. We use Provision Map as part of our ‘assess, plan, do & review’ process which allows us to set meaningful targets for children and regularly review the provision they receive.
A Local Offer gives children and young people with SEND, and their families, information about what support services the local authority think will be available in their local area. Every local authority is responsible for writing a Local Offer and making sure it is available for everyone to see.
The link to the Norfolk Local Offer is here: https://www.norfolk.gov.uk/children-and-families/send-local-offer
