Consulting with our SEN Pupils, Parents & Carers

Consultation with Children with SEND

Class teachers, along with the SENCO and teaching assistants, will work with children to identify the support needed to meet their agreed outcomes. Provision is planned and interventions are allocated based on individual needs. Children take an active role in setting outcomes & discussing progress with their class teacher by completing ‘All About Me’, which seeks their views on how best to support them. 

We also seek children’s views with a SEND Questionnaire for pupils.

Consultation with parents & carers of children and young people with SEND

We are committed to working with parents & carers to identify their child’s needs and plan appropriate support.  Staff have strong, positive relationships with parents/carers, and they are involved in all SEND processes from the point of initial concern. 

We work with parents in a range of ways, including but not limited to;

  • Termly parents/carers evenings.
  • Initial SEND meetings at the start of the year, to discuss & plan provision for the child & ensure parents contribute to & understand the support in place to help the child meet their outcomes.
  • Working with parents to complete referrals to seek further support for their child. 
  • Regular reviews of their child’s SEND Support plan/EHCP (termly).
  • Parents are involved in outcomes planning & feedback meetings with associated professionals (e.g. Educational Psychologist, Cognition & Learning team, EWEL team).
  • Home/school communication diaries (for children whose needs require them).
  • Signposting/referring parents for additional support for the family, e.g. Rollercoaster group, One Point. 
  • An ‘open door’ policy, where parents/carers are welcome to come into school/contact staff via Class Dojo to discuss any concerns they may have.

We are committed to ensuring that our provision for Special Educational Needs & Disabilities meets the needs of children and their families. In order for staff and governors to gain insight into parents’ views, we ask for further feedback through our anonymous parent survey for SEND. This enables us to analyse responses so that we are able to celebrate our strengths and identify our areas for development.
