An interactive session where members of the SEND Assessment & Review Service will support you to complete a needs assessment request for a pupil with additional learning needs at your school. Please note that needs assessment requests should only be made where the SEN support funding you have received is not sufficient to meet the child/ young person’s needs and at least two Assess, Plan, Do, Review cycles have passed.
Attendees must bring a laptop/ tablet to the session, so that you can complete a request with support from the SEND Assessment & Review Service. Additional advice will be supplied prior to the event so that you are sufficiently prepared to complete a request in the session.
If you don’t have a ‘live’ request to make with the online form but you would still like to learn how to use the form, then you can complete a ‘test/ dummy’ needs assessment request for a fictitious child/ young person during the session.
All needs assessment requests will need to be submitted using the online form from April 1st 2019. As a result of this change we are running two Twilight sessions to train SENCOs in this new way of working. If there is enough demand, then we will put on more similar sessions prior to switching online.
