SENCO: Jenelle Harvey-Aduca
Some students at The Enterprise Learning Alliance may have identified or unidentified difficulties in reaching their potential, as the SENCo I work with students, their families and teaching staff to not only identify these needs but to enable students to achieve to the best of their ability.
At The Enterprise Learning Alliance we can make provision for every kind of frequently occurring special educational need with or without an Education Health and Care Plan, for instance dyslexia, dyspraxia, speech and language needs, ASD, specific learning difficulties and social, emotional and mental health difficulties.
All students are assessed on literacy, numeracy, reading age and a Boxall profile completed on entry to the school and individual learning plans created, should the student assessment indicate any potential difficulties then further assessment takes place.
At The Enterprise Learning Alliance we follow the advice in the Mainstream Core Standards on how to adapt the curriculum and the learning environment for pupils with special educational needs.
Where children are underachieving and/or identified as having special educational needs, the ELA provides for these additional needs in a variety of ways and might use a combination of approaches and interventions to address targets identified for individual pupils. These follow the ‘Assess, plan, do, review’ cycle and are regularly monitored and reviewed by the SENCo.
The provision and interventions we have on offer include, but are not limited to:
· High quality teaching and an inclusive environment.
· Small group teaching for academic and vocational subjects.
· Reading – reciprocal reading, paired reading, reading for meaning, comprehension, pre reading for subject preparation. Supported reading within the classroom, reading pens for those who require that level of support.
· Pre teaching and precision teaching.
· Sensory support, sensory diets, movement breaks throughout the school day.
· Language for learning approaches used throughout school.
· SEMH interventions include positive behaviour policy, school counsellor support, lead behaviour TA’s within each centre, use of discrete adults for regulation support. Social skills programmes and anxiety support.
We also incorporate the advice provided as a result of assessments, both internal provided by specialist assessments conducted by myself as a specialist SpLD Teacher and external specialists such as Educational Psychologists, Speech and Language therapists and NELFT.
