What are we at Patchway Community School are doing?

Patchway Community School has been open to children of key workers and vulnerable children. All students who are identified as SEND and who have had a risk assessment completed in conjunction with parents and carers and reviewed according to need.

The SENCO, Teaching Assistants and Teachers are in contact with SEND students at least weekly via Google Classrooms or telephone. If a parent has a concern they should discuss it with their assigned Teaching Assistant or Student Support Team in the first instance.

Where possible Annual Reviews will be completed remotely via the phone or an appropriate group call service. Further reviews will of course be available should any adjustments to an EHCP be required upon return to school.

 If your child has an EHCP and or has been registered as SEN support and you have any questions or concerns about the support or provision provided then please contact the school directly to discuss:
