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.
Pupil voice is very important and we achieve this by providing weekly “ Key Person “ time when all children have a platform to talk and share ideas, successes and points of interest to them This open dialogue allows all children to feel heard. In addition to this all children take part in our committee structure. This allows children to choose an area of school life that interests them and they can then take a lead in its development over the school year. Annually, children complete a pupil questionnaire to share their thoughts on school life and how it could be improved.
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.
- Parent questionnaires, annually
If you would like to discuss your SEND requirements in detail please contact the school to arrange an appointment.
