Special Provision

Provision For Students With an Educational Healthcare Plan (EHCP)

Transition to our School

At SSPS we understand that starting a new school can be a stressful time particularly for students with SEMH needs.

Consequently, we have a carefully planned transition process, which includes:

– An initial visit to the school or home visit

– A personalised transition plan to help your child get used to their new surroundings

– Acquiring all relevant information and prior assessments, allowing us to set up an ‘EHCP Tracker’ and ensure your child’s needs are at the heart of all provision offered

– Every pupil has a Pastoral Lead, who manages the Centre they attend day to day, and an Academic Mentor.

– We conduct Thrive (Social and Emotional) and Academic Baseline assessments to ensure your child’s needs are understood.

We are always keen to welcome new pupils at

South Somerset Partnership School

How we support you and your child

– The Centre Pastoral Lead will be in regular contact with families.

– Weekly calls from your child’s academic mentor to let you know how the week has gone both academically and socially.

– Our students are taught in small groups. Where this requires some additional work, the pupils will have a personal package, negotiated with parents and SEND, which meets their needs. Our aim is always to have pupils on site and learning in small classes.

– EHCP’s are reviewed once a year. Every child at SSPS has a Personal Pathway (IEP) which, for children with EHCP’s includes a personalised EHCP Tracker.
