how we assess send
Class Teachers, support staff, parents/carers and the learner themselves will be the first to notice a difficulty with learning. At Allington Primary School we ensure that assessment of educational needs, directly involves the learner, their parents/carer and of course their Teacher. The Inclusion Manager will also support with the identification of barriers to learning. We have a range of assessment tools available and access to specialist advice to support us in the assessment of specific barriers to learning.
For some learners we may want to seek advice from specialist teams. In our school and cluster we have access to various specialist services. We have access to services universally provided by Kent County Council. This enables us to access support from advisory teachers and in some cases, educational psychologists.
