SEND and Interventions at home
We understand that you may be concerned about the Special Educational Needs or Disabilities of your child whilst they are not attending school. Please do not be overly concerned about this. Once we are able to return to school, we will continue to provide all children with the high-quality teaching and personalised interventions they need to ensure they continue to make progress.
We would urge you to ensure that during this time at home, your child continues to read regularly as well as practise times tables and other basic maths skills. Every child at St. Margaret’s has been given access to Bug Club, Times Tables Rockstars, Doodle Maths and Education City in order to continue to learn and practise these skills.
In addition to this, we have sent out via email some SEN resources that are personalised for each child with SEND, in order to support them further. These resources are available to download below for all children who might benefit from them.
There is also a wealth of online support for parents of children with Special Educational Needs and below are some links to websites and apps which you may find useful when working with your child at home. It would be very useful to know which activities are particularly enjoyable/useful for your child so we can share this with others, so please do give us feedback via Class Dojo or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
As always, if there is any further support we can offer, whether it is to answer a question or to signpost you to more specific resources, please let your class teacher know or email the school for the attention of Mrs Fitter or Mrs Leonard our SENCo's.
Above all, we want your child’s experience at home to be a safe and happy one, so that they return to school feeling enthusiastic to continue their education with us.
