How will both you and I know how my child is doing and how will you help me to support my child’s learning?


In addition to the normal reporting arrangements what opportunities will there be for me to discuss his or
her progress with the staff?

Class teachers are always willing to make arrangements to speak to parents that are mutually convenient. Our Learning Mentor is available at the start and end of the school day to discuss your concerns with, or appointments can be made to speak to them in private. The SENDCo can be contacted at the school and a meeting arranged at a mutually convenient time. Where a plan of support has been agreed with parents, a time and date for regular review meetings will be arranged.

How will you explain to me how my child’s learning is planned and how I can help support this outside of

Class teachers hold regular reviews of progress with parents and information is sent home relating to
progress, attainment and attendance. Where additional support is agreed, parents are encouraged to
maintain regular contact with staff through agreed meeting times or the use of a communication book. This
allows school to ensure information to and from parents is up to date and relevant. We have regular meetings to share the progress of special needs children with their parents or carers based on the stage of investigation, severity of need and availability. Where an EHCP is in place annual reviews will be held to discuss provision and progress.

How does the school know how well my child is doing and how will I know what progress my child should be making?

School practices mean that pupil progress is monitored throughout the year and this information is shared
with parents when we meet. We refer to outside agencies when appropriate, with parental consent, and many of these offer additional assessment and/or advice relating to the expectations school should have relating to achievement and progress. We share the process of decision-making with parents/carers by providing clear information relating to the education of children with special educational needs whether the information is from the school itself or feedback from the external agency.

Do you offer any parent training or learning events?

The school works closely with parents and carers and we encourage an active partnership. Class teachers organise regular parental events within school which all pupils, whether identified as SEN or not, are encouraged to participate in. Where appropriate, staff will refer children and/or their families to more specialist services and support should this be appropriate and agreed within the discussions with parents.
