3. How are my child's needs identified?
New to North Primary School
When your child starts at North we begin finding out more about them this is so that we can plan for their needs, ensure that they settle in to our school happily and make good progress in their learning.
Have Parent Information Meetings
Contact previous schools or educational settings & transfer reports
Meet with outside agencies involved with the family or child
Before children start in EYFS we would usually do a home visit, during coronavirus, you and your child will visit North.
Currently attending North Primary School
After school reopened in September 2020, we are assessing all pupils for gaps in their learning and will be delivering interventions to close the gaps.
We are observing pupils SEMH through the delivery of the Recovery Curriculum, which all teaching staff have had extensive training in.
On a day to day basis all adults at North Primary listen carefully to what pupils share with us through:
informal chats about their learning
self assessment and shared language about learning
Parents and Carers can share information by:
Informal chats with teachers
Parent Workshops - these will be delivered virtually during coronavirus
Virtual intervention drop ins
Contacting the SENCO or SLT via email or phone
Marking and Testing of curriculum work provides insight in to all pupil progress and achievement. Information collected for each pupil is carefully looked at by class teachers, year group experts, SLT and is used to plan for next steps for the children, in Raising Attainment meetings.
In some occasions your child may require expert assessment by an outside agency, this will be organised by the SENDCO. Outside agencies can include:
Education Welfare Officer
A specialist teacher
Speech and Language Therapist
Travellers Education Service
Youth Support Worker
Family Support Worker

Children and Adult Mental Health Service
Behaviour Support Team
