Mrs Dodman is the SENCO for Meadows First School. You can contact her via the contact form on the website or phone the school directly.
All children at Meadows First School receive high quality teaching.
Teachers plan carefully, providing lessons that suit the range of needs and abilities in their class because children learn at different speeds and in different ways.
We ensure that all children are given the help and support they need to learn. The help given will vary depending on the individual needs of each child.
It may be support to develop academically, emotionally, socially or physically. Most of this support will happen naturally in the classroom environment and will be organised by the class teacher.
Sometimes children may have more specific or complex needs and need a little more support or something more personalised to help their learning. In this case a child will be identified as having a Special Educatinal Need or Disability (SEND). This means that their learning and support will be overseen by Mrs. Dodman (The SENDco).
“A pupil has SEND where their learning difficulty or disability calls for special educational provision, namely provision different from or additional to that normally available to pupils of the same age”
(SEND Code of Practice p.82)
