SEND

Specialist Support Staff for SEND

 

At Chase Lane Primary School and Nursery we believe that all children, including those identified as having special educational needs, have a common entitlement to a broad and balanced academic and social curriculum. In line with county policy we are committed to being an inclusive school.

 

Miss Tilley, the Special Educational Needs Coordinator (SENCo) can be contacted via the school office on 01255 502416 with any concerns regarding your child and Special Educational Needs and Disability at Chase Lane.

 

 

Rebecca Tilley

SENCo

 

Miss Tilley has been SENCo at Chase Lane for over ten years and has completed an advanced diploma in Special Educational Needs Studies. She is a member of the school Senior Leadership Team and has input into the strategic planning for children with SEN. Rebecca  has regular meetings with senior staff, teachers, teaching assistants, pupils and their families and outside professionals concerning the provision of SEND at Chase Lane.

 

Rebecca is a facilitator for the Maze parenting group, supporting parents and carers of children with additional needs in the local community.

 

At Chase Lane, we have a strong team of support staff. Within this team there are some with specialist knowledge in particular areas. This enables us to offer holistic targeted support to children in key areas of need, working together as a team.

 

 

Rachel Brookes

Specialist Langauage & Communication LSA

 

An increasing number of children are entering schools with Speech, Language and Communication Needs (SLCN). In some areas, in excess of 50% of children start school with some level of SLCN. These children may not have the skills required to listen, attend, understand and talk about their learning and to engage in the curriculum. Communication is fundamental to a child’s development, it is crucial for a child’s learning and social interactions both at school and into adulthood.

 

Mrs Brookes, in liaison with outside agencies, leads speech, language and communication provision across the school, supporting children individually and in small groups. Rachel is able to provide information and resources for parents and other school staff in this area.

 

 

Helen Foord

Learning Mentor

 

 

Mrs Foord provides support and guidance to help children at Chase Lane who are experiencing difficulties in learning due to social or emotional problems. Helen provides a link between home and school to ensure lines of communication are open and information can be shared with the relevant people.

 

 

Clare Bryan

Behaviour Support LSA

 

 

Miss Bryan works closely with Mrs Foord, often supporting children during more unstructured times of the school day such as, lunchtime and break times. Clare runs small intervention groups which support the development of key social skills, confidence and self-esteem and emotional resilience.

 

 

Christina Aldis

Counsellor BA (Hons) BACP

 

Mrs Aldis is employed by the school to support individual children with higher levels of emotional need. Children are identified by the head teacher and SENCo, in partnership with parents/carers who feel this would be beneficial to a child.

 

                                                                                           

At Chase Lane Primary School and Nursery we believe that all children, including those identified as having special educational needs, have a common entitlement to a broad and balanced academic and social curriculum. In line with county policy we are committed to being an inclusive school.

                 Essex Language and Communication

                           Schools Award Scheme

 

                            Chase Lane – going for gold!

In July 2017 Chase Lane took a step closer towards the Gold award by achieving the Silver level.

The aim of the Essex Language and Communication School Award is to recognise a school’s excellence in supporting and developing children’s language and communication skills by developing provision at Universal, Targeted and Individual levels across four key areas:

 

  • The learning environment
  • The role of adults
  • Language development and learning
  • Person-centred approaches (the individual child)

 

Communication is fundamental to a child’s development, it is crucial for a child’s learning and social interactions both at school and into adulthood.

 

The award is received in recognition of all staff at Chase Lane showing a commitment and consistent approach when supporting our children with additional speech, language and communication difficulties.
