Special Educational Needs & Disability
Although our school remains closed to most year groups, we will try to support families and those working with children and young people who have special educational needs and disabilities as best as we can.
We have created this page to share resources and information that may be useful and will add any relevant updates from specific services as they become available.
Mrs E. Camplin, our Inclusion Manager and Special Educational Needs Coordinator (SENCo) can be contacted via school’s office on 020 7828 6790. You may also send her an email through our contact form.
Speech & Language:
Our speech & language therapist, Anthony Wright, has gathered together a set of advice & resource packs for parents who would like to do some fun language-based activities with their child.
These resources are not designed to target specific skills but are mainly tried-and-tested games that we know help all children to develop their core communication skills, such as listening/attention, auditory memory, vocabulary, sentence-building, story-telling and conversation skills.
- Everyday activities to develop your child’s talking (EYFS) – Advice and resources on how to develop early language skills during everyday life.
- The first of five packs on Attention and Listening, Vocabulary, Sentences, Storytelling and Conversation (EYFS & KS1) – I have taken relevant sections from a brilliant resource called ‘The Communication Cookbook’ and added in other things I have gathered from elsewhere to create themed packs that target different skill areas.
- The second pack on Attention and Listening, Vocabulary, Sentences, Storytelling and Conversation (EYFS & KS1)
- The third pack on Attention and Listening, Vocabulary, Sentences, Storytelling and Conversation (EYFS & KS1)
- The fourth pack on Attention and Listening, Vocabulary, Sentences, Storytelling and Conversation (EYFS & KS1)
- The fifth pack on Attention and Listening, Vocabulary, Sentences, Storytelling and Conversation (EYFS & KS1)
- Listening and auditory memory games (KS1) – Advice and resources on activities such as ‘barrier games’.
- Word games for supporting vocabulary (KS2) – Based on advice from the people who developed the ‘Word Aware’ program, with some additional ideas from elsewhere.
- Creating a Communication Friendly Environment (for all age groups) – Basic principles taken from ‘The Communication Cookbook’.
- Links and downloads (for all age groups) – A selection of other online resources that might be useful for parents looking for specific things.
Bi-Borough Autism Outreach Service:
This Specialist Service comprises of the Outreach and Training Service – Westminster Special Schools (Westminster) and the Autism and Early Years Intervention Team (Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea). They support children and young people with an Autistic Spectrum condition (ASC) and deliver advice and support for schools and parents, enabling them to meet the needs of children with a diagnosis of autism.
Their website lists a range of services available to support children and young people with autism, and their families. They have also published their inaugural newsletter, which we have included here for you:
Our prayer for the week:
We are not people of fear:
we are people of courage.
We are not people who protect our own safety:
we are people who protect our neighbours’ safety.
We are not people of greed:
we are people of generosity.
We are your people God,
giving and loving,
wherever we are,
whatever it costs,
for as long as it takes
wherever you call us.
