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.
All pupils are included in the SEND reviews through either attendance at the meetings or through discussions beforehand. Children are also encouraged to talk to us in a more informal way through classroom conversations, chats on the yard or check-ins by the SENCO. Many children with SEND choose to be a part of our School Pupil Groups and they are supported in doing so successfully.
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.
All parents and carers have a personal DoJo account. This enables staff and parents to have a proactive conversation. The SENCO is also on the DoJos for every class and parents can contact them directly.
