          Frequently Asked Questions

          父母 Ask.....

           

          How does your school know if my child needs extra help?

          • If your child is transferring to Lampton and already has a special educational need, your primary school will inform the Special Educational Needs Co-ordinator at Lampton. These children form the majority of 发送 students at the school.
          • There is planning between the schools and with parents/carers in Year 6 to support the student’s move from primary to secondary school.
          • On entry to the school, all students are screened on key cognitive skills, language skills and certain core academic skills. This system can pick up potential needs at the earliest stage.
          • Some children do well at primary school but find the transition to secondary education more difficult. The teachers are highly alert so that such areas of need are spotted early and referred to the Pupil Care Team (PCT) so that support can be co-ordinated promptly.
          • The school listens to parents/carers. Sometimes, the first signs of needs are identified through conversation at home so parents/carers are always welcome to contact the school to talk about concerns.
          • There is a Y7 Inclusion 欢迎 Meeting in September to help with the transition. 

          What should I do if I think my child may have a special educational need or disability? Who can I contact for further information?

          • If you are concerned about your child’s abilities, the school will listen to your concerns, discuss them with you and agree on a plan that requires monitoring or may require assessment by specialist staff or external agencies.
          • You can contact the school by phone, letter or e-mail (please see contact details on the home page of the school website).
          • It will be OK to contact the school through a family friend or professional translator if you feel more comfortable using a language other than English
          • If your child is still at primary school, talk to your child’s teacher there who can help you look at any issues and make links with Lampton to help prepare for the next year.
          • If you are interested in finding out about more about Speech and Language Centre, please check that page on the website.

          What is an EHCP?

          An EHCP is a legal document that identifies a child’s SEND needs and focusses on the support required to meet agreed outcomes. The key difference between a statement of 发送 and EHCPs is that, as well as the educational elements covered in statements, EHCPs also outline the child’s health and social care needs, outcomes and support.

          How will I know if your school is supporting my child? How will I know how my child is doing? How is student progress monitored?

          全体学生:

          • The school will send correspondence (for example a letter or e-mail) to let you know if we are proposing to offer your child support that is additional to or different from what is already in place for all mainstream students.
          • Parent/carer consultation evenings are both opportunities to discuss your child’s progress and needs and to find out about support options.
          • 父母/carers are always welcome to contact their child’s form tutor at any time to discuss particular concerns as they arise.

          学生们 with EHCPs:

          • Your child will have identified needs and an education plan in place from the time they start at Lampton. Their support lessons will show on their timetables and parents/carers receive termly news on outcomes of this extra intervention.
          • 学生们 will have an Annual Review of their progress and needs. This comes in the form of a full written school report in advance of a specially arranged face to face meeting between parents/carers and staff. During this meeting, students, parents/carers and staff have the chance to express their views about the progress being made and the provision they are receiving at school.

          How will the curriculum be matched to my child’s needs? How are the school’s resources allocated to these needs?

          • All staff are trained, (through a yearly programme of Continuing Professional Development sessions), in adapting lesson plans to increase the use of elements known to support students who need extra help. For some students with less complex needs, this is all that is required to help them make progress.
          • Teachers also have access to the profiles of students known to have specific needs and they can collaborate with the specialist staff to build adaptations to activities especially for those individual students.
          • Many lessons benefit from having a Teaching Assistant in the class who can spot difficulties and help to give instant support.

          • If your child is specifically funded through their EHCP, meetings with the relevant Head of Centre will include discussion and agreement about how that funding is used and monitored.
