Support Guide to Changes in Worcestershire Services
Below is a document created by NHS Worcestershire, which gives information on services parents can access. As a result of the coronavirus pandemic, some of the services are working in different ways to support children, young people and their family or carers, and this information is collated below.
National Autistic Society Helpline: Call 0808 800 4104, 10am-3pm, Monday to Friday
(excluding bank holidays).
SPECIAL EDUCATIONAL NEEDS AND DISABILITIES (SEND)
Our school promotes inclusion and ensures that children with special educational needs, disability or medical conditions are not discriminated against in any way.
We follow the definitions outlined in the Sen and Disability 0-25 years Code of practice (2014) when deciding whether a child has a Special Educational Need. For more information on this please refer to our School Information Report.
Our school has an Accessibility Plan aimed to ensure that:
· All pupils have equal access to and participation in the school curriculum.
· Accessibility for disabled pupils/parents/visitors is enhanced.
· All pupils/parents have access to information.
In their planning teachers account for the needs of each child, and where extra provision is required the teacher and the Special Educational Needs and Disabilities Leader assess the child’s needs carefully and develop a map of provision which matches teaching strategies, resources and/or extra adult support to the child’s individual learning requirement. At Stoke Prior First School, parents are actively involved in supporting their children’s learning.
For those pupils who need it, additional support and advice is given by outside agencies, with whom we work closely with.
Worcestershire Local Offer
Here is a link to the Worcestershire Local Offer. This will provide information about provision families can expect to be available across education, health and social care for children and young people who have Special Educational Need (SEN) or are disabled, including those who do not have Education, Health and Care (EHC) plans. You can find out about resources, services, support, activities and events here.
Information on the Graduated Response
The Graduated Response refers to the way that support is reviewed and updated regularly for each child. This involves a four-part cycle called Assess, Plan, Do, Review and there is further information below:
Education Health and Care Plan (EHCP)
If we can't meet your child's needs using the support we usually offer to children who need extra help, the County Council may carry out a needs assessment for your child. This is called an Education Health and Care Assessment or EHC assessment. When your child's needs have been assessed, a plan for meeting these needs may be drawn up. This plan is called an Education Health and Care Plan (EHCP), please see the links below for further information:
