SEN Support

We have a highly experienced team of staff who may be involved in supporting your child at Temple. These include:

  • Your child’s teacher, who will always make sure that tasks set are appropriate and accessible for your child. They are available to you at the start and end of each day.
  • Teaching Assistants, who support all pupils in class. We have several additional TAs who help support groups and individual children with their learning.
  • The SENCO (Matthew Foster)
  • In house Speech and Language Therapist (SALT)
  • A Counsellor, who work with children who may be experiencing a particular period of trauma or emotional difficulty, including help with friendships.
  • Ms Aisha Ali (Governor)  who works with the SENCO in leading SEN in school
  • Sometimes school may commission Specialist Support to work with identified children with a particular focus e.g Occupational therapists, physiotherapists etc.
  • Learning Mentors who work with children with social, emotional and behavioural needs.
  • The LEAP team who support children who are learning English as an additional language.

In addition to the staff supporting children to learn, we run a number of therapeutic interventions and have a Sensory Area in the SEN Room which is used by many children throughout school with a range of SEN needs.

All lessons are differentiated to the needs and abilities of the children in the classes. Teachers take great care to identify a child’s specific and preferred way of learning and work is planned accordingly. Where necessary, a child might have an individual timetable and specific work or additional support depending on their additional need. This will be discussed with parents during parent-teacher consultation meetings or additional progress meetings generally attended by the class teacher and SENCO.
