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.
St Charles has active pupil governors how meet regularly and actively consult with all pupils.
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.
We offer an open door policy where you are welcome any time to make an appointment to meet with either the class teacher or SENCO and discuss how your child is getting on.
We can offer advice and practical ways that you can help your child at home.
We believe that your child’s education should be a partnership between parents and teachers, therefore we aim to keep communication channels open and communicate regularly, especially if your child has complex needs.
If your child has complex SEND they may have a Education and Health Care Plan (EHC), which means that an annual formal meeting will take place to discuss your child’s progress and a report will be written. Informal meetings can be held as needed.
Our children’s viewpoints are taken very seriously at St. Charles’. Children are invited into Annual Reviews and TAF meetings to ensure they are fully involved in the process.
If you would like to discuss your SEND requirements in detail please contact the school to arrange an appointment.
