SENDCO - Miss Caroline Budd
Coleshill Heath complies with the Code of Practice (2014), in which the Department for Education outlines the responsibilities of the Local Education Authority and the school for children with special educational needs. Each child’s progress is monitored carefully and programmes of work or behavioural support are prepared to meet the needs of individual children. Parents are involved in regular discussions regarding the support and together a positive attitude is fostered within the classroom.
ASD Lead - Mrs Gallier
The Autism Team from the Specialist Inclusion Support Service (SISS) provide specialist support to children who are on the autistic spectrum. They work alongside staff providing bespoke interventions to help children with ASD so that they can be successful in a mainstream setting. They will also meet with parents to discuss strategies that might help children in the home setting. SISS also provides a range of support for parents and families through courses and events, that Mrs Gallier can signpost to.
SISS Specialist teachers regularly visit school to support children who have a diagnosis of autism or children we feel are on the autistic spectrum. We are able to access their support once they have a diagnosis from the Specialist Assessment Centre.
Our ASD lead can help support children, families and school staff manage children who have autism. Anybody wishing to speak to Mrs Gallier about any aspect of autism is welcome to get in touch via the school office.
