Consulting with our SEN Pupils, Parents & Carers
Consultation with Children and Young People with SEND
When support plans are set within school, any targets are shared and discussed with the child where appropriate, so that they can take an active role in support available to them. Children are always invited to review meetings with parents, so their views can be part of the assess, plan, do, review cycle.
Our SENDCo Mr Wakelam works closely with SEND pupils to ensure that the SEND voice is heard within school, and the thoughts and opinions of all children are valued.
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 always be involved throughout this process.
There is a range of ways this currently occurs within school, including:
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 termly reviews of their child’s SEN Support Plan/ EHC Plan.
In the 2018/19 academic year we will also be starting a termly SEND coffee morning/working group, where parents of SEND pupils can meet and work with us to evaluate our SEND provision in school with key school staff. Further information will be sent to parents at the start of the academic year.
