How will the school support me?

If the school has worries or concerns regarding my child, how will they contact me?

If a member of staff has a worry regarding your child they will discuss the matter with SENCo for advice and the necessary action to take. They will then where necessary discuss the matter with yourself to make you aware of the issue but to also identify whether the issue is a result of another event happening in their life at the moment. It is important to discuss the issue with you as to gain a ‘bigger picture’ of the child and to identify how they are in different situations e.g. home life.
How will you as a school support me?

Our SENCo within school who is our specialist with children with Special Education Needs and Disabilities will also be able to give you advice on who to seek for further support, for example, any external agency and what we as a school can do for you.

If you have any worries or concerns regarding your child do not hesitate to come and speak to us either in a morning or after school. If you feel it requires further discussion, we can schedule a more appropriate time to discuss the matter in more detail.

Frequent termly or half termly meetings are often set up with parents; to discuss a child’s needs and review the progress they are making. It is in the schools best interest to set up these meetings as to review progress with you and discuss any further issues the child may have. This also enables time to be given to you if you have any worries regarding the child outside of school.

In cases where a child has an Individual Education Plan (IEP), personal targets set will be discussed with you and reviewed every term.

Where any external agencies are involved, all information will be discussed with you or with the person involved directly, or where this is not possible, in a report.
