Planners to support SEN students

Our fully customised SEN planners can include pages and systems that support additional needs. 

We know that no two SEN schools are the same. Each will have a different approach to tracking progress, organising home learning, and communicating with staff, parents and carers.

Whether you need monitoring books for staff, or pupil-centric planners, we can help you. 

Ask for our SEN-specific library of page ideas to explore how we can help your school. We have page examples to help pupils articulate their needs, self-reflection and useful help sheets. You can also use or adapt any of the page ideas shown in our primary and secondary school planner libraries.

Communication Support

Customised planners can include pages that support your communication needs:

  • Home-school communication and feedback
  • Monitoring to share between support staff
  • Keep everyone informed of key dates and milestones

Include your own communication guidance and make it relevant to SEN pupils, staff, parents and carers. We can help create pages that promote strong home-school engagement and feedback.

Learning Support

We’ll work with you to create content that is both relevant and useful in supporting your staff and pupils. Planners can be student-focused, or a record book for support staff. Almost anything is possible with our help and guidance.

Case Study

Lexden Springs (SEN)

North Essex

Lexden Springs is an SEN school based in North Essex, near Colchester. They requested bespoke content that allows teachers to support students effectively. Maintaining a meaningful dialogue with parents and carers. In fact, 94% of surveyed parents at the school said customised pages helped them better understand their child’s day at school, 89% feel confident that they could use the planner to communicate any issues with their child’s teacher(s).

Staff at Lexden Springs also find benefits in the students’ bespoke planners. Teacher Nicola said, “The key content is the space available for home. Letting us know how the pupil’s night has gone, so we can be aware of this when addressing their needs.” Other teachers surveyed agreed space for comments are one of the most useful sections in their planners.
