11. How are the parents/carers/young people currently involved in your educational setting? How can I get involved and who can I contact for further information?
We believe that children thrive when there is a strong relationship between home and school. We seek to give emphasis to this for families of children with SEN.
Parents/carers of children with SEN are offered all of the standard opportunities to meet with school staff however, they will also be offered 3 additional opportunities to meet their child’s class teacher to discuss individual targets set and progress against these.
Should outside agency support be felt necessary, parents/carers will be contacted directly by the Inclusion team. You may be required to meet with the external agency support.
Children with Statements or EHC plans are additionally invited to an annual review meeting which is an opportunity to gather together, with all of the professionals involved with your child, to review progress and plan for the next year. The local authority is also involved in this process. Children’s views will contribute to this review and will be gained in a manner appropriate to their age and ability.
For children with SEN further information can be gained from the inclusion leaders (Mrs Marie Bishop or Mrs Jackie Hurden) or the SENCo (Mr Damian Pratt).If you require a meeting please phone (02380448944) or visit the school office.
