How will you be consulted and involved in your child's education?
You have a very important role to play in your child’s education. You will be involved in discussions about your child from the very first concerns raised by the class teacher.
- In consultation with you, and at times your child, plans will be formulated as to the best way to plan learning experiences so that your child can make progress. Achievable targets will be set and the strategies to achieve them will be agreed. A review date will also be set at this time.
- Reviews formally take place three times a year but the plan is a working document and other meetings may need to take place to keep you fully informed. Parents/carers can also request a meeting at other times. A meeting can be arranged through the school office either with the class teacher or, if appropriate, with Mrs McNeill the school’s SENCo.
- If your child needs assessment by an external agency e.g. Educational Psychologist or Inclusion Consultant, then a meeting will be arranged with you for you to discuss your concerns with them and then you will be fully informed of their findings through verbal feedback and a written report.
- Some children will require an Education Health Care Plan. These children will have multi-agencies contributing to their agreed targets and reviews. A local authority officer may attend a review once a year and will always receive a copy of their end of year review. The parents/carers are an important part of this process and will work in partnership with the other professionals involved.
