Consultation with Children and Young People with SEND
Teachers/SENCO and Support Staff will work with children and young people to identify the support needed to meet agreed outcomes. The provision is planned and interventions are allocated to individual needs. The children take an active role with setting their outcomes and discussing them with the class teacher/SENCO. The children have regular meetings with staff to discuss their progress and support.
Consultation with parents and carers of children and young people with SEND
We are committed to working with parents and carers to identify their child’s needs and support. Parents and carers will be involved throughout the process.
There is a range of ways this can be done, for example:
- Termly parents/ carers evenings;
- Ongoing discussions with a class teacher and/or SENCO;
- An ‘open-door’ policy, where parents and carers are welcome to come into school to discuss any concerns they may have;
- Through regular reviews of their child’s SEN Support Plan/ EHC Plan.
We believe that your child’s education should be a partnership between parents and teachers, therefore we aim to maintain open communication, especially if your child has complex needs.
Parents are welcome any time to make an appointment to meet with either the class teacher or SENCO to discuss how your child is getting on. We offer advice and practical ways that you can help your child at home.
If your child has an EHCP (Education Health & Care Plan) their views will be sought before any review meetings. The SENCO will work with all outside agencies that are involved in the welfare of your child.
