SENCO: Jenelle Harvey-Aduca

 

Some students at The Enterprise Learning Alliance may have identified or unidentified difficulties in reaching their potential, as the SENCo I work with students, their families and teaching staff to not only identify these needs but to enable students to achieve to the best of their ability.

At The Enterprise Learning Alliance we can make provision for every kind of frequently occurring special educational need without a statement of special educational needs / Education, Health and Care Plan, for instance dyslexia, dyspraxia, speech and language needs, autism, Asperger’s syndrome, specific learning difficulties and behaviour difficulties.

All students are assessed for literacy, numeracy and social emotional behavior on entry to the school and individual learning plans created, should the student assessment indicate some needs then further assessment takes place.

At The Enterprise Learning Alliance we follow the advice in the Mainstream Core Standards on how to adapt the curriculum and the learning environment for pupils with special educational needs.  We also incorporate the advice provided as a result of assessments, both internal and external, and the strategies described in statements of special educational needs / Education, Health and Care Plans.

 

Where children are underachieving and/or identified as having special educational needs, the ELA provides for these additional needs in a variety of ways and might use a combination of these approaches to address targets identified for individual pupils.
