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. Currently, we are working to improve how the children taking an active role with setting their outcomes and discussing them with the class teacher or SENCO. We have recently introduced a 1-page profile for children on the SEND register. These are created between the class teacher and child through discussion around the child’s likes and dislikes, their areas of difficulty, how this may look and what strategies help them.
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.
We offer an open-door policy where you are welcome any time to make an appointment to meet with either the class teacher or SENCO to discuss how your child is getting on. We offer advice and practical ways that you can help your child at home. We provide regular homework to support and complement the work carried out in school.
We believe that your child’s education should be a partnership between parents and teachers, therefore we aim to keep communication channels open and communicate regularly, especially if your child has complex needs.

‘The support we have received has been of the highest quality, the highest standard, with the most compassion and consideration we have known. You have exceeded any expectations we ever had, and from the bottom of our hearts (and patience at times), we wish to thank you.’
