Welcome to the Rotherham SEND resource kit

This resource aims to provide easy access to consistent, high quality information, practical ideas and resources for school staff in Rotherham who are supporting children with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND).

It covers the following areas:

  • Descriptions of the different types of needs which you may come across – and how to spot them in a school setting
  • Strategies for meeting these needs and developing individual plans
  • Ideas for how to work successfully in partnership with parents and children / young people
  • Expectations of schools as part of the graduated response

It is part of Rotherham’s graduated response to special educational need and disability.

The resource has been developed by a multi-agency group, including CAMHS, educational psychology, children’s therapy teams, specialist teaching teams, school nurses, parent and SENDCO representatives. We hope you find it useful.

It will be periodically updated to keep information current and to include good practice examples from across the schools of Rotherham.

We are rolling out this online resource in stages so some sections are not yet completed. Please note that the graduated response document (above) contains lots of useful information relating to the sections still in development.

We would welcome feedback on this site so we can continue to develop and improve it.
