If, as a parent/carer, you have any concerns regarding the progress your child is making in any areas please contact school. Contact your child’s class teacher initially. We listen very carefully to concerns and through working together we aim to support your child by putting intervention in place where appropriate. We closely monitor every child’s attainment and progress so hopefully we will have already discussed any concerns we have with you.
If you feel that you would like to speak to a senior member of staff please make an appointment to speak to Kirsty Flynn (SENCo) either through the main office or through the contact details. An action plan will then be put in place to further assess or monitor such concerns.
Parents are kept informed about teaching and learning through regular newsletters, the school website, parents meetings and class newsletters. Class teachers are happy to meet with parents/carers, often on a drop-in basis, to discuss ways to support your child at home.
Parents are welcome to make an appointment to meet either the class teacher or SENCo at any time throughout the year and discuss how their child is progressing. School can offer advice and practical activities to help support children at home.
A child with SEND will have a Pupil Overview of Provision (POP) which will have individual or group targets and this will be discussed with parents/carers and child on at least a termly basis. Parents will receive a copy of this.
During the discussion around the POP there is the opportunity to discuss strategies and next steps which can be put in place to support, both at home and at school. These will form new targets and will be reviewed regularly.
When a POP is reviewed comments against each target set are made to show what progress has been made and to identify the next steps. This is a joint discussion involving parents/carers and children, as well as the teacher and, where appropriate or requested,
If a child has complex SEND they may require additional support beyond what school can offer. In such situations a formal meeting will take place to discuss how these needs can be met through, possibly through an Education and Health Care plan (EHC plan).
