How do we support complex SEN ?

• Working as a team is key to supporting complex needs.
 
• A Multi Agency Meeting (MAM) can be requested by school. A representative from the Local Authority SEN Team attends to discuss pathways for our children and families this is usually in cases of EHCP or ARC referrals (see below)
 
• Leadership meetings can be held to discuss routes and funding (see below)
 
For Complex Needs: 3 Options can be available depending on circumstances, diagnosis, evidence and advice.
 
Top Up Funding School can apply for top up funding to be used to employ support staff and or resources. Currently we have 2 children with support. School provides extra hours for the staff to meet the children’s needs all day. Maxine Pape applies for the funding with parental views. Funding is awarded in a band system if granted.
