Identifying SEND

How does the school identify and assess Special Educational Needs?

In school we use a variety of different ways to assess whether a child has SEND.
These include:
• Observations.
• School based results - Target tracker or Sandwell Skills Ladders.
•Termly assessments and on-going assessments.
• Information from parents and carers.
• Information from the child.
• Specialised assessments carried out by members of the school’s support services/SENDCo and the Sandwell Inclusion Support Team. 
• Information from previous schools or settings
• Results from end of key stage assessments (Year 2/Year 6)
• Discussions with adults who work with the child
​• Information/referrals from doctors, paediatricians or other medical personnel.
