SEN Policy and Information Report

What/who is this for?

This document below outlines everything you need to know about supporting SEN pupils at Braddock. It is useful for parents, pupils and people who would like to know what we do to create unique possibilities for ALL of our pupils, including those with SEN.

What is SEN?

A Special Educational Need is when a pupil finds something harder than other children that are the same age or when a pupil has a disability that might make it hard to use the resources in the school. Difficulties could be: communication, learning, emotional or physical. This means that teachers have to think carefully about what each pupil needs to succeed and progress.


All the teachers in the school are teachers of children with Special Educational Needs.

Important Information

The person co-ordinating the day to day provision of education for pupils with special educational needs is Miss Rebecca Harris (SENDCO/Head of School). Miss Harris is also the lead SENDCo in the St Barnabas MAT and leads MAT network meetings. Miss Rebecca Harris is the ‘responsible person’ for SEND at Braddock.

There are three teaching assistants who work specifically with pupils with SEN – Mr Adams, Mrs Mallett and Miss Lavis. Mr Adams and Mrs Mallett co-ordinate interventions such as precision teach, phonics support and letter formation. Other class based teaching assistants also work with pupils with SEN in a range of ways.

Miss Harris and Mrs Kemp are trained thrive practitioners and so work 1:1 with some pupils with emotional needs as well and carry out assessments to support this program.
