Resources to support SEN

For some of our children, a period away from school and doing learning from home can be an anxious time. However, the anxiety can be eased a little by setting up a clear timetable of activities to follow, giving each day structure and familiarity., much like a school day  If the whole day is too much to focus on, a timetable could be made for a morning or an afternoon instead. Please find below an example of a timetable template that could be used and a selection of visual timetable cards that are very similar to the ones we use at school. 

We understand that this is a difficut time for everyone and so we are here to help. Please do not hesitate to email broadoaksendco@sthelens.org.uk if you have any questions or need any further support. Each year group has a seperate email so if you would like to contact your child's teacher directly, please use the email address listed on the year group page.

Children with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities

During this time, you may find that your child is finding some of the Home Learning activities difficult to access. We have therefore listed a wealth of websites which can be accessed and used to meet your child's individual needs. We have also added some further fun activities that help develop areas such as fine and gross motor skills and self-regulation as well as fun activities to support sensory processing.
