Class Teacher

The class teacher is responsible for:

  • Adapting and refining the curriculum to respond to strengths and needs of all pupils;
  • Checking on the progress of your child and identifying, planning and delivery of any additional support required to support progress within everyday teaching.

If it has been agreed that a pupil child requires additional SEN support the class teacher will also contribute and oversee delivery of personalised SEND Support Plans.

If you have concerns about your child, you should speak to your child’s class teacher first. Depending on the outcome of these discussions, you may have follow up meetings with the school’s SENDCO.
