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.
As a Rights Respecting School, pupil voice is extremely important to us. At the beginning of the school year, all children are part of creating class charters, where they decide how they would like children and teachers to behave towards each other. School counsellors are encouraged to seek children’s view on how the school can improve for example school meals. OPAL leaders are encouraged to consult others on how the outdoor provision can be improved. Children also complete questionnaires, are encouraged to use the school’s worry box, take part in circle time on a weekly basis and self/peer assess their work.
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.
