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.
- Ensure that children with SEND are happy, motivated and make expected levels of progress throughout their time in school.
- courage the children to share what they would like to learn and participate with.
- Extend resources that they show a preference for.
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 keep communication channels open and communicate regularly.
If your child is on the SEN register, they will have a SEN Support Plan which will have individual outcomes which will be achievable in the time frame give on the plan. This will have been discussed and arranged with the parents / carers and it is reviewed half-termly with the parents / carers at an informal meeting.
If your child has more complex needs with may have an EHCP (Education Health Care Plan) which means that a formal meeting will take place to discuss your child’s progress and reports are regularly written.
