SEN Terminology

At Woden we offer different levels of support. We use the following terms to identify the support offered to groups of children with additional needs.

Phase 1

These children are identified by class teachers as requiring some extra help and this will be provided within the classroom or in an intervention group.

Phase 2

These children have more specific difficulties and may not be making the required amount of progress. In this instance the child will receive an Educational Learning Support Plan (previously an IEP). This is a set of targets, suggested by the class teacher, which the child will work on with an adult . If staff feel that it is necessary / appropriate these targets would support a referral to outside agencies e.g. the Area SENCo.

Education, Health Care Plan

This level of support would follow the gathering of evidence required by the authority to offer a child an Education, Health and Care Plan.

We would like to assure parents that the excellent support currently given to all children with SEN will continue following the changes from the Government.
