Identification of needs
How will the school let me know if they have any concerns about my child’s learning in school?
If your child is identified as not making progress the school will set up a meeting to discuss this with you in more detail and to:
• listen to any concerns you may have
• plan any additional support your child may receive
• discuss with you any referrals to outside professionals to support your child’s learning
How do we involve parents in planning for those needs?
You will be invited into school to discuss the needs of your child and to talk about the kinds of provision that are available – you will also be invited to:
• Termly structured conversations with the class teacher, which focus on your child’s needs and how to help both at home and school
Who in the school will support my child and how will this be monitored and evaluated?
The SENCO (Special Educational Needs Co-ordinator) – Miss Holly Matthews, email: firstname.lastname@example.org and is responsible for:
• Coordinating all the support for children with special educational needs or disabilities (SEND) and developing the school’s SEND Policy to make sure all children get a consistent, high quality response to meeting their needs in school.
• Ensuring that you are:
involved in supporting your child’s learning
kept informed about the support your child is getting
involved in reviewing how they are doing
• Liaising with all the other people who may be coming into school to help support your child’s learning e.g. Speech and Language Therapy, Educational Psychology etc…
• Updating the school’s SEND register (a system for ensuring all the SEND needs of pupils in this school are known) and making sure that there are excellent records of your child’s progress and needs.
