SEND Covid Response Update September 2021


In line with government guidance, our school closed on Friday March 20th 2020. From this point, pupils on the SEND register were supported in the following ways:


1.      Weekly topic-based home-learning packs that covered the whole curriculum.

2.     Delivery of paper copy home-learning packs to all families who requested – many of these were personalised to meet the needs of individual children.

3.     Weekly/fortnightly speech and language programmes delivered to the homes of targeted children.

4.     Weekly food hampers collected in school (or delivered as required) and direct contact with these families.

5.     Targeted weekly spelling and reading challenges posted on school e-platforms.

6.     Fortnightly telephone calls home from range of staff members

7.     Weekly pastoral home visits to 20 families by learning mentor and SLT.

8.     Children with SEND who were also vulnerable pupils attended our school throughout the lockdown period. 

9.     Online video sessions (google meet) with pupils and classes.

10.   School equipment delivered to families in need, such as stationery, laptops, learning resources (e.g. counters for maths) etc.

11.    Access to Reading Plus intervention for targeted pupils in Y5 and Y6.

12.   Access to online phonics teaching for pupils in EYFS and KS1.

13.   In addition to EYFS, Year 1 and Year 6, all pupils had the opportunity to be taught in school for a set period in Years 2, 3, 4 and 5 during June and July.

14.   Open morning for new pupils and families in EYFS in August.

15.   Home visits to all new starters in the EYFS in August.


In September 2020 upon full reopening all class teachers were asked to complete a staff survey with a focus on SEND engagement throughout lockdown, immediately evident gaps in learning and priorities for intervention.

The Local Offer at Barton St Peter's CE Primary School

At Barton St Peter's we value all of God's children. We believe that they all have an equal opportunity to work to their full potential and to enjoy being part of a positive school community.

Children with Special Educational Needs or Disabilities (SEND) have learning difficulties or disabilities that make it harder for them to learn than most children of the same age. The difficulties may be short or long term and they may need extra or different help from that given to other children. In order to do this many steps are taken to support them throughout their time at school. Quality first teaching and well planned differentiation are essential to achieve this; however for some children there are occasions when further additional support may be needed to help them achieve their targets. This is where the SEND team would begin to work to support pupils and their teachers.

Support may be given in a group or one to one, either within the classroom or separately. All groups are run by trained teaching assistants or class teachers and are used to support a wide range of children, not just those with Special Educational Needs.

Examples of one to one and group interventions are:

  • Beat Dyslexia
  • Paired Reading
  • C.A.L.L
  • Lexia
  • Occupational Therapy
  • Phonics 1:1
