SEND Information for Parents

Ellis Guilford’s SEND Information Report is a parent friendly guide which gives parents and carers further information about Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND) provision at Ellis Guilford School. We hope you find it helpful and informative.

At Ellis Guilford School we believe Every teacher is a teacher of SEND.
Seating plans are printed and kept within the EGS Teacher Planner.
Seating plans are annotated to indicate the strategies being used to support pupils, and make use of
the following:
• Pupil passport specific strategies e.g. Text in size 14 font
• Support required with PROUD
• Specific support required identified from marking
• Progress data
• Literacy supporting strategies

We also strive to use a range of techniques to ensure progress for all. The 10 universal strategies are suitable for all pupils, and are used in all lessons despite the specific
strategies (above) that may be used for specific pupils.
All lessons will include:
1. Pause and wait thinking time
2. All resources on a cream background e.g. Knowledge Organisers, PowerPoint
3. Clutter free classrooms – The front of all classrooms will be clear
4. Seating position to maximise learning
5. Learning buddy system for support
6. Learning Objective, date and key notes written clearly on whiteboard
7. Targeted questioning by the teacher
8. Annotated seating plans that outline personal learning strengths of the pupils
9. Key PowerPoint slides or information sheets printed for pupils when helpful
10. PowerPoint slides to avoid ‘text’ overload and text to be a readable size

For additional information please do not hesitate to contact our SEND team.
