Special Educational Needs and Disabilities
At Elmhurst we recognise that sometimes learning can be challenging for some pupils. We provide quality first teaching for all pupils and when pupils have been identified as having additional needs we offer individualised support.
Every child on the SEND register has an SEN support plan. This outlines desired outcomes, type of provision, time and financial costings. These are shared with parents and carers three times per year.
We have Learning Support Assistants to support those children with additional needs. They are trained to run a number of interventions including:
Talk Partner and Shape Coding - to support pupils with speech and language difficulties.
Precision Monitoring - to support pupils with specific numerical or literacy difficulties.
First Class at Number - to support pupils with Numeracy difficulties.
Rainbow Road - to support pupils with gross/fine motor difficulties.
Toe-by-Toe - systematic, one-to-one, phonics teaching.
New Reading, New Thinking - specific reading activities to develop inferential thinking.
Nurture Group - a small group for children who may feel insecure in school or who are in need of more adult attention than can be provided in their main class.
We are proud to have excellent links with multiple external agencies. You may find the following links of use.
