Welcome to Treverbyn's Special Educational Needs (SEN) team!
I have thoroughly enjoyed the start of my new role and now have a greater insight into how best to support every child at Treverbyn.
My aim is to ensure that every child recieves the best education in order to reach their full potential. I work with Teachers and Support Staff to review, plan and carry out specific interventions which strategicaly support individual needs.
I also work with parents and carers to support them as well as external agencies.
Please see our SEND Local Offer for more information, if you would like to make an appointment to discuss any concerns with me, please feel free to contact the office.
Miss Helen Craig
Trauma informed school's practitioner
As a Thrive Practitioner, my main responsibility is to build positive relationships with children. I observe and assess their social and emotional development and use the Thrive Approach to tailor a programme of play and arts based activities to meet their needs.
Part of this work involves supporting children who are struggling with their behaviour and helping them to find a positive way forward. I work closely with parents to make sure we are providing a holistic approach.
In addition to this, I help teachers with the assessment of their whole class emotional and social development and then use this assessment to inform their Personal, Social and Health Education (PSHE) planning.
If you have any concerns about your child's social and emotional wellbeing, please contact the office to arrange a chat with me over a cup of tea and some biscuits!
Mrs Pip Moss
Speech and Language
I work with children throughout the school who have difficulties pronouncing specific sounds in their speech. I also help children with their understanding of language. Children need to be able to speak clearly to enable themselves to be understood. They also need to be able to understand the meaning of what they hear.
Children normally attend speech and language sessions 3-5 times a week where their targets are addressed by means of fun activites that they all seem to enjoy. If your child attends speech and language sessions within the school and you would like to discuss their progress, please feel free to contact the office to make an appointment to see me.
