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 targets, discussing them with the class teacher/SENCO. The children have regular meetings with support staff to discuss their progress and support.
- Pupils are at the heart of our school community.
- At Stanley Crook Primary School we believe it is really important that we consult with our pupils and consider their opinions, ideas and thoughts, to help us to evaluate what the children like about our school and what we can do to make it even better for them.
- We have a very active School Council – elected in Team Councils – who help make decisions about our school from the colour of our uniform to the design of our toilets!
- Our Buddies and Mini Buddies are always on hand to help in the playground – if you have a problem sit on the Buddy Bench and we will help you!
- We therefore believe that their voice should be taken into account. Our school works well because pupils and staff listen to each other and work together through our School Council and feedback.
- We also have a “Buddy” system in place to help pupils make friends or discuss problems.
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 a review of a child’s SEN Support Plan or the Annual Review of their Statement of SEN or EHC Plan.
If you would like to discuss your SEND requirements in detail please contact the school to arrange an appointment.
