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.
We try to keep children heavily involved in decisions and target setting with regards to their learning. Children are involved in discussing/setting targets when new intervention and support plans are written. Children are invited to support plan/EHCP reviews to discuss their needs with the relevant adults.
The Pupil Task force also have a direct say in how the school addresses the needs of our children, because they have a direct say in how the school addresses the needs of our children, they feel empowered and able to create and sustain change.
Meetings with the Pupil Task force and initiatives led by the children include:
- Consultation on new equipment for the School Field
- Choice of books for the school Library
- Investing in Children consultation
- Health and Safety/Behaviour walks
- School meal consultations with SNAG group
Children in Key Stage 2 watch the BBC News and any issues which arise are discussed with the children.
Throughout the year as part of our assembly programme we discuss a range of subjects with the children.
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.
- Community Learning Projects
- Drop-in sessions
- Play and Stay sessions
- Adult Learning Sessions
- Tapestry to engage EYFS parents in their children’s learning
The school engages with parents on a daily basis. The Head and Deputy are available every morning to deal with parents – dealing with any enquiries or concerns that there might be.
