Additional Help

As discussed in other sections Durham Federation provide a lot of support for students to succeed within school. However, there will be times when new concerns arise. As a result we encourage you to contact Mrs L Smith the SENCO to enable us to target the appropriate interventions that are required.

Identifying students with SEND

We take information from a range of sources when establishing if a child has specific SEND needs. These sources include:

  • Primary Schools
  • Standardised tests, (including literacy/numeracy tests, ‘value added’ measures reading age test and SATs results)
  • Individual teachers and departments
  • Parents
  • Pupils themselves
  • Outside Agencies
  • In-College monitoring
  • MET team
  • SEND Team

If you would like to discuss your SEND requirements in detail please contact Sacriston or Ushaw Moor to arrange an appointment with our SENCO Mrs  L. Smith
