NEW – Consultation Documentation September 2019
As some of the SEND children attending our school are still very young, consulting with them to seek their views about how we are meeting their needs has to be age appropriate, especially when many often have communication difficulties. It also means that very have to ensure that we work closely with families.
We consult with families in a variety of ways:
- Regular meetings and discussions with parents about what we have planned for their child and how to link this with interests and passions demonstrated at home
- Involving SEND children with planning their own activities and encouraging them to share what they would like to learn and participate with
- Extending any resources that they show a preference for
- Ensuring the children with SEND are happy, motivated and make at least expected levels of progress throughout their time in school
We believe that the help of parents is particularly important in supporting the progress made by each child and we will consult with them when decisions need to be made.
Teachers are always willing to discuss a child’s progress, attainment or interventions taking place in school with parents.
Termly meetings to review Pupil Profiles together with Parents’ Evenings in the autumn and spring term and an end of year written report are arranged to help keep parents informed about their child’s progress in our school.
