Special Educational Needs and/or Disability

Miss Egginton is the Special Needs Co-ordinator (SENCO) at Marlborough. Miss Egginton organises support for children from across the school who need extra support with aspects of their learning and development to ensure that pupils with SEN are treated as favourably as other pupils. This work is in addition to the interventions being carried out by teachers and our experienced teaching assistants.  A number of our interventions are nationally accredited including:

  • Maths Recovery (Mrs Jones and Mrs Dempsey)
  • Fisher Family Trust Wave 3 Literacy (Miss Gillespie)
  • ECaR (Mrs Higham)
  • Better Reading at Primary (Mrs Leah)
  • ECaR inference training (Mrs Yeates)
  • ELS (Miss Gillespie)
  • Reception Literacy Programme (Miss Tune and Mrs Warburton)

Support can be seen in many forms at Marlborough and may include 1-1 support in class or 1-1 work out of class, small group interventions targetted and children's individual needs. Wherever possible, fun, multisensory activities are used. 

 

New Special Educational Needs and Disability Code 2014

A new Code was published on the 28th July 2014. A 'Parents Guide' is available in the 'Files' section along with the Marlborough SEN Information Report 2014 which details the ways in which Marlborough works. This also links in with Cheshire East's Local Offer.

 

New Paperwork

Children with additional needs are supported through School Focused Plans (SFP's), Individual Health Care Plans (IHCP's) or Individual Target Sheets (ITS). If this applies to your child then you will have been informed and invited to attend a meeting  with the class teacher and sometimes Miss Egginton and or other staff. Your views are very important to us when creating targets and deciding on provision for your child. If you wish to discuss any of the paperwork please contact your childs class teacher or Miss Egginton.

 

Working with Parents and Carers
 
Supporting parents is also very important for us at Marlborough, Miss Egginton will meet with parents of children with additional needs when needed or upon request. You can see Miss Egginton in school, phone and ask for a call back or email jegginton@marlborough.cheshire.sch.uk if you prefer.

 

Useful Information

The purpose of this section of the site is to provide reliable information sources on different Additional Needs. Please also see the video section for some interesting videos about children/young adults with Autism and other special needs.  

This list is not exhaustive and the information does not replace professional advice/diagnosis, our aim is to keep adding to the list of sites. If you know of any other good quality websites/groups/phone numbers which may be of use to other parents or if you would like information on a specific need to be published then please let Miss Egginton know.
