The SEND Register

The SEND register is a list of all the pupils in the school/ class who have special educational needs (SEN) and/or a disability.  This makes it easier for the SENCo and staff to monitor those pupils who need extra help. There are two parts to the register:

  • School Support
  • Education, Health and Care Plan (EHCP)


Why is my child on the SEND Register?

Any pupil on the SEND register has been identified as having a special educational need and/or disability.  Extra help will be given to these pupils to help them to make progress.  Your child will only be on the SEND register if you have discussed with your child's class teacher and SENDCO.


What does this mean for my child?

If your child is placed on the SEND Register, then they will receive extra help.  This will be set out in their Pupil Passport so that you can see what help your child is receiving and how often. If your child has an EHCP then they will have additional paperwork setting out their support. (see table below)


Will my child always be on the SEND Register?

This can vary.  Some pupils with significant needs will always be on the SEND Register because they will always need additional help and support.  Other pupils may only need something additional for a short amount of time and if they no longer need any help above and beyond that of usual class teaching, then they will be removed from the SEND Register in discussion with parents/carers.
