Canon Johnson C of E Primary School

SEND at Canon Johnson 

Our Special Educational Needs Coordinator (SENCO) is Miss Buckle and our link governor is Mr Kashim.

Miss Buckle is responsible for the implementation of our school’s SEND policy, co-ordinating additional support for pupils with SEND, liaising with parents, teachers and other professionals who are involved and monitoring the attainment and progress of all pupils with SEND.

If you have any concerns about your child’s learning or if you think that they may have a special educational need, please do not hesitate to speak to your child’s Class Teacher or Miss Buckle, and together we can plan the best method of support for your child.  

At Canon Johnson we pride ourselves on being an inclusive school. We recognise that children learn in different ways and at different rates and that some children may need extra support or intervention to help them to reach their full potential.

We work hard to develop good relationships with all our families and look forward to working closely together with you, to ensure that your child can flourish.

If your child is having SEN Support in school, we follow a graduated approach of Assess, Plan, Do, Review and will invite you into school each term to attend a Person Centred Planning Meeting. During these meetings, together we will assess what is working well for your child and plan the next steps needed to support them in their learning.

Please see below for an example of the headings we discuss during a Person Centred Planning Meeting
