Progress of pupils with SEND at Co-op Academy Glebe:

All children are continually assessed by staff and each half term the SENDCo monitors the progress of all children on the SEND register. The SENDCo then works closely with the class teacher to ensure that the children’s needs are identified and suitable provision is implemented. This will include quality first teaching and may also involve interventions where children are taken out of class either individually or in small groups. The school employs a number of additional members of staff to provide support for children within lessons as well and encourage independent work. Early intervention support is also accessed from a range of external specialists and Glebe Academy works closely with Educational Psychologists from the Local Authority and other outside agencies, such as Speech and Language Therapists and Occupational Therapists.

Provisions Co-op Academy Glebe Offers in School:


  • SOS spelling-this is an intervention where pupils work one-to-one with a member of staff and learn up to five different spellings each week, by rewriting the words and saying each of the letter names.
  • Precision teaching-this can be used to improve a child’s reading ability by reading specific words at a certain pace and aiming to improve their score over the week.
  • Toe-by-Toe-this can be used to improve children’s reading by recognising sounds of letters.
  • Daily reading- Staff work with individual children reading daily, completing different reading activities with a specific focus, depending on the needs of the children,


  • Plus 1- this is a daily programme where children complete number recognition and other number based activities, including the four operations of number.
  • Power of 2- the same as Plus 1 but a progression from this programme. Power of 2 aims to cover more complex number relationships.
  • Precision teaching- this can be used in a variety of different ways in Numeracy, for example, when children are learning number bonds to 10. They are provided with a grid with additions in and they aim to answer as many as they can in a given time. The number they answer should improve throughout the week.

Other Interventions we Offer:

  • Children who have been diagnosed with Autism (ASD) have visual timetables to help support them.
  • Children who are on the SEND register for Social, Emotional and Mental Health receive support through reward charts. Each child has been given a target based on their individual needs and the child receives ‘treat time’ that has been decided by themselves.

There was 1 permanent exclusion in 2022/2023. There have been 0 permanent exclusions during 2019/20, there were 0 fixed-term exclusions during 2018/2019 and 2 exclusions during 2018/19.

Pupil attendance is reviewed as part of SEND monitoring process and the absence of pupils with SEND is the accountability of a designated member of staff (Kirsty Suleman). Close links are maintained with the parents and the Education Welfare Officer (EWO) who supports Co-op Academy Glebe in dealing with any attendance issues including any persistent lateness.

Deployment of Staff and Resources:

  • Currently (2022/23), the school receives £28,000.00 in High Needs SEND funding and during 2020/21 the Academy received £30,584.62. This is/was used to contribute to the employment of 5 Learning Support Practitioners to support pupils with Education, Health and Care Plans. There may be an Early Years Transition Co-ordinator (EYFS/KS1) or a Closing the Gap Co-Ordinator (KS2) working with your child either individually or as part of a group. The content of this support will be explained to parents when support begins, as part of a child’s bespoke programme of learning and is reviewed and updated during termly learning conversations.

The school also invests in specialist Early Years Transition Co-ordinators to support children within EYFS and KS1 and Closing the Gap Co-ordinators to support pupils within KS2.
