Identification and assessment
At Parkside, we aim to ensure that students who are thought to have a SEN&D need are identified and assessed as early as possible. On entry to Year 7, all students are tested on their reading and comprehension ability through a standardised test.
If your child comes to us with SEN&D need, Statement or Education, Health and Care plan they will undergo additional standardised testing to ensure that the provision that we are providing for your child is appropriate.
The results of these tests, along with their KS2 data and information gathered through the transition process will determine the level of initial intervention.
It is important to note that not all students referred to the SEN&D Team will be SEN&D students; any support and guidance given may be short, medium or long term.
