How do we consult with our SEN pupils?
We offer an open door policy where you are welcome any time to make an appointment to meet with either the class teacher or SENCo and discuss how your child is getting on.
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, especially if your child has complex needs.
Sometimes, we operate a home / school link book which your child will bring home regularly so that comments from parents and teacher can be shared and responded to when needed, this ensures that we can also work together and there is a constant line of communication.
If your child has complex SEND they may have an EHCP (Education, Health and Care Plan), which means that a formal meeting will take place to discuss your child’s progress and a report will be written.
The SENCO will work with all outside agencies that are involved in the welfare of your child.
How will my child be able to contribute their views?
We pride ourselves on our close relationship with all our pupils. We value and celebrate each child being able to express their views on all aspects of school life. This is usually carried out through Pupil Voice which has an open forum for any issues or viewpoints to be raised.
Children with SEN are asked formally to consider their views on their progress towards targets termly, but this will form part of the working dialogue between staff and children on a regular basis.
If your child has an EHCP (Education Health & Care Plan) their views will be sought before any review meetings.
