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 targets, discussing them with the class teacher/SENCO.
The children have regular meetings with support staff to discuss their progress and support. They contribute to their personal targets in a format that is appropriate to the age and level of understanding of the pupils. For certain children it could be through a structured conversation with a member of staff, annotated drawings or written recorded comments. It is essential that we seek the voice of the pupils and gain an insight into what they feel is working well and how we can help them to progress.
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 a review of a child’s SEN Support Plan or the Annual Review of their Statement of SEN or EHC Plan.
Parents are invited in to termly meetings with the class teacher, SENCO and through our open door policy and are welcome into school to discuss issues. At Bloemfontein Primary we ensure that parents are kept fully involved of their child’s progress, strategies and next steps including involvement with outside agencies. The plan is a shared process and parents are encouraged to provide input.
If you would like to discuss your SEND requirements in detail please contact the school to arrange an appointment.
