SEND - Consulting With Pupils
How do we Consult with Our SEN Pupils?
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.
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.
Effectiveness of the Provision
It is important to us that we ensure all children with SEND are making progress. The SENDCo sets end of year targets for all children with SEND to enable staff to work towards these targets. We review the impact of our interventions every half term to ensure they are having an impact. In cases where an intervention is not working effectively staff will consult with the SENDCo to adapt or change it.
Pupil progress meetings with the Head Teacher will also monitor the effectiveness of the provision to ensure that teachers and support staff are accountable for ensuring children make the progress they should.
