Who should I speak to if my child has learning or language difficulties?
Hornbill School has an ‘open-door’ policy- if you have any concerns about your child’s learning, we recommend that you discuss them with the class teacher in the first instance. Either speak to your child’s teacher at the end of the school day or contact the office to make an appointment.
Alternatively you can speak to your child’s class teacher at one of the regular parent-teacher consultations.
The Class Teacher is responsible for:
The Inclusion Leader or the Support Inclusion Leader
If your child has identified learning needs or requires additional support then the best person to talk to is either the Inclusion Leader or the Support Inclusion Leader at our school. They are responsible for:
- involved in supporting your child’s learning
- kept informed about the support your child is getting
- involved in reviewing how they are doing
Assistant Headteachers (Learning Phase Leaders)
Each Assistant Headteacher is responsible for ensuring the needs of all the children including those with SEND or Additional Needs (AN) within his/her Learning Phase are met. Learning Phase 1 includes the Foundation Stage 1, 2 and Year 1, Learning Phase 2 includes Year 2, Year 3 and Year 4, while Learning Phase 3 includes Year 5 and Year 6.
Deputy Headteacher (Nepal) and Deputy Headteacher (UK)
The Deputy Headteachers support and advise the Assistant Headteachers and the Inclusion Team in ensuring the needs of all children across the school, including those with SEND or AN, are met.
The Headteacher is responsible for the management of all aspects of the school, this includes the support for children with SEND or AN.
The Headteacher gives responsibility for the day to day management of SEND to the Inclusion Leader, Support Inclusion Leader and class teachers but has overall responsibility for ensuring that your child’s needs are met.
