The ”SEND Code of Practice” explains that most children who have SEN will be able to have their needs met by the school using their SEN budget. The budget will allow the school to set up a plan of how their needs will be supported and will be reviewed regularly to see if it is benefiting the child. This is known as SEN Support or SENS.
SEN Support can be provided in many ways. For example, through making modifications to the teaching content, delivery of education and materials like writing frames, visual prompts, or personalised reward systems.
If the child is making good progress, they may no longer need the extra help and can be taken off the school’s SEN register. If they are not making progress, the school will need to adjust the support given and take into account other professionals advice. If the child still fails to make enough progress in a set amount of time, they may need to be assessed to see if they need an Education, Health and Care Plan or EHCP.
