This communication profile is used to inform all staff and volunteers who enter the classroom and work with individual pupils with additional needs. It is developed in collaboration with all adults who are key to the pupil and with the pupil themselves. The outcome for the pupil is that their needs are met in all areas which allows them to have better access to the curriculum and make more progress.This is then reviewed on a regular basis to ensure all information is accurate and up to date.
This single-side document, written by a pupil, explains how he feels teachers should work most effectively with a student with PDA. It was created as part of a piece of work on pupil voice and has had a powerful impact on teacher understanding.
In the context of funding from education, a personal budget may be available where the support
provided by the school or other educational setting is insufficient to meet the student’s support
needs. The setting itself might decide to use additional resources, such as the money from ‘pupil
premium’, if the young learner is eligible to receive it.
