Dyslexia

We currently use a dyslexia screener in school to identify pupils, who may have traits of dyslexia. Please note that this is not a diagnostic tool however, it supports staff and parents/carers in making further decisions in how best to support their child with their learning. For further information about this, please contact Mrs Baverstock or your child’s class teacher.

Social, Emotional & Mental Health Needs

We have a range of services in school to support pupils with their SEMH needs. These include: Art therapy, ELSA and our Wellbeing Group. We can also contact Primary Behaviour Support, who works alongside the county’s Educational Psychologists for further advice and support for pupils within school.

RAISING ASPIRATION

We use diverse approaches to change the aspirations for our SEND children. 

Some aim to change aspirations directly by exposing children to new opportunities and others aim to raise aspirations by developing general self-esteem, motivation, or self-efficacy.

All Local Authorities are required to publish information on the ‘Local Offer’ about all SEND services, along with details of any eligibility for specialist services and a signpost to support for those who do not meet thresholds. 

Hampshire’s Local Offer can be found here:

INCLUSIVE

At Andrews’ Endowed CE Primary School, we strive to meet the needs of all pupils within our school. All staff are aware of SEND within the school and receive high quality information and training. We aim to quickly identify pupils, who are making limited progress and provide targeted interventions and support to meet their needs. We are working with parents to ensure they are fully aware of the SEND process and informed of their child’s learning regularly throughout the year. We are a fully inclusive school and have strong links with the Local Authority, Health Professionals and organisations within our community. We aim to continue to learn, develop and grow our understanding of SEND across the school to meet the needs of all pupils within our care.

If you have any concerns or wish to discuss SEND at our school, please do not hesitate to contact me:
