SEND at Redwood

An anonymous quote which came back from the SEND capital consultation March 2022 conducted by Pauline Melvin OBE: Service Director- Learning, Inclusion and Skills


“At Redwood Primary school the staff have programmes that are enhanced to support not just the pupils the parents too. Their understanding of disability and the additional needs of children are managed so effectively. I wish I had sent my son to Redwood for his education at the start of reception years. Cannot praise this school enough, and the care and person centred approach towards all children brilliant school”



The SEND Champions

How do we help children with SEND at Redwood?


The 4 areas of SEND are:


1) Cognition and Learning

2) Communication and Interaction

3) Social, Emotional and Mental Health

4) Sensory and/or Physical


When your child is identified as having an additional need in one or more of these areas, their class teacher will support them. They will set targets, plan activities to meet those targets and then review the progress your child has made. You are an important part of this process and will be involved with setting and reviewing the targets. This will happen termly.


If, over time, your child is not progressing as well as we would hope, it may be suitable to involve other agencies who can provide further advice and support. When this is necessary, Mrs Clark will inform you and will work closely with families to get the support that is needed.
