SEND GRADUATED RESPONSE TABLES
These tables are guides to support SENCOs in our educational settings with implementing the graduated approach to special educational needs and/or disability.
They will help SENCOs and Inclusion Managers to regulate the level of support expected by teachers as part of Quality First Teaching. They also support with understanding what is meant by a graduated approach. If a pupil is demonstrating a difficulty with achieving, managing relationships, learning, engaging etc. this needs to be identified at the earliest time and suitable provision put in place by the teacher. If the teacher finds the support is not working to reduce the emerging gap between the child and their same age peers, then this may be described as a child with an additional need, who requires either SEND Support, or possibly additional pastoral support. The tables her are specific to pupils requiring SEND Support, but information here may also be beneficial when thinking of inclusion more widely.
The tables cover the 4 categories of SEND as set out in the Special Educational Needs and Disabilities Code of Practice 2015:
Communication & Interaction (table 1: AUTISM, table 2: SLCN [Speech Language Communication Needs])
Cognition & Learning
Physical and/or Sensory (table 1: MEDICAL, table 2: HI: Hearing Impairment, table 3 VI: Visual Impairment)
Social Emotional Mental Health
NB: these tables replace the existing SEND Profiles and are not required to be submitted by SENCOs for ehc needs assessment requests.
The tables are uploaded here as separate documents, but will eventually be included within the Inclusion Handbook.
Please send any SENCO/Inclusion Manager feedback on these tables to Sue Franklin, Head of Educational Psychology and Pupil Support Services: firstname.lastname@example.org
Inclusion Handbook (DRAFT Sept 2019)
This new inclusion handbook is to support SENCOs and Inclusion Managers to understand all of the services and processes that we have in Lambeth for children with Special Educational Needs and/or Disabilities, or pastoral needs. This is the draft version that will soon be completed and published in October 2019.
