We also have Key Link Worker Role system in place in school and so Students with SEND often benefit from having a named adult at the school, who works closely with them to identify and address barriers to learning, enables them to become successful independent learners and works collaboratively with parents/carers, all with the aim of improving outcomes.
Teaching Assistants carry out this important role and are assigned year groups. They remain with their Key Link students throughout their time at Seahaven. TAs have allocated sessions on their timetable to regularly meet with and work proactively with their Key Link students.
