Initial identification is via the information received by the SENDCo from their Primary school. On arrival at Woodcote screening tests take place to ensure that all those pupils needing support are identified. After that the teachers at Woodcote make referrals to the SENDCo with their concerns about individual pupils they teach. In addition there are half termly SEND meetings run by the SENDCo and attended by representatives of each subject. The driving force behind the identification process by teachers is the fact that a pupil is not making adequate or expected progress despite the teacher delivering lessons with differentiated tasks which should make tasks accessible to all pupils.
