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.

SEND Parent Voice Questionnaire

In July 2019, children who were on the SEND register were asked to complete a pupil voice questionnaire to find out all about their year at Redwood. The children were fantastic and shared some really important information which has helped us to plan for the new year. Have a look at what the children said on the links above.

Transition Information (Year 6 to Year 7)

Derby City Council have published their transition guidance document for parents with children, with SEND, going from Year 6 into Year 7. Please take a read as you may find some useful hits and advice to support your child at home. It will also give you an idea of what Redwood and our feeder secondary schools will be doing to support a smooth and successful transition for your child.
