SEND provision during COVID-19 school closure
Due to the Government’s COVID-19 directive, Sandfield Primary School closed on Friday 20th March 2020.
During school closures, Sandfield’s SEND provision has changed to include:
Our home learning online platforms (Seesaw or Tapestry for Early Years) are open. Class teachers are setting 1 Maths activity, 1 English activity and 1 foundation activity. Other core learning to complete will be daily tables practice, e.g. TT Rockstars, daily reading, daily spelling and phonics. One day a week, year groups have planned Wellbeing activities with a focus on mindfulness, creative tasks, PE activities and family challenges. Teachers ensure that there is always something different and something for everyone. Information has been shared with parents to encourage children to follow a clear routine, which follows school hours.
The SEND provision is a personalised provision, depending on individual and family need. It includes:
- Differentiation and adapted resources for some online activities (e.g. different phonics work set in Tapestry and differentiated instructions in Seesaw for some activities)
- Inclusive technology – Tapestry/ Seesaw is accessible to all (e.g. recording work verbally rather than writing)
- Home learning resource packs sent home to identified children (e.g. books and whiteboards)
- Laptops for children who meet school set criteria (e.g. children who are struggling to access or children who are SEND and PP)
- Specialist equipment sent home for children who might need it
- Regular contact from DSLs or Inclusion team for identified families and children (e.g. Young Carers)
- Referrals to charities (e.g. Foodwise) and Surrey professionals working. (E.g. Educational Psychologist has phoned identified parent or helplines shared with parents)
- SENCo liaison with parents and professionals involved for children who have EHCPs (e.g 1 virtual Annual Review completed and another planned during COVID-19 lockdown)
- SENCo and HSLW are working with teachers/ SLT about all children involved with the Pastoral and Inclusion Team
- SENCo and HSLW are liaising with nurseries and secondary schools about planning transition
From Monday 23rd March 2020, the onsite school provision is a childcare provision, not educational. Children attending the onsite school provision will fit the governmental guidance criteria (e.g. children of keyworkers or children with an EHCP).
The Government has made some temporary changes to the law on education, health and care needs assessments and plans due to coronavirus (COVID-19). This gives local authorities, health commissioning bodies, education settings and other bodies who contribute to those processes more flexibility in responding to the demands place on them by coronavirus (COVID-19).
