Consulting With SEN Children and Families

The SEND children attending our school are aged 4-11 years so consulting with them to seek their views, about how we are meeting their needs, has to be age appropriate, especially when some may have communication difficulties.

The following all go towards school collating feedback on their SEND Provision:

  • School offer a leaflet to parents making an enquiry with regards to SEND Provision in school.
  • The School noticeboard provides SENCO details and details of services available in the community.
  • The SENCO is available in school every Wednesday and is contactable the rest of the week by mobile phone.
  • The SENCO is available for drop in sessions at every Parents’ Evening.

 

We use the following strategies:

  • Have regular meetings and discussions with parents about what we think may be appropriate for their child and how to link this with interests and passions demonstrated at home.
  • Make close observations during school to identify the types of activities and experiences that most engage each child so these can be developed further and be used to inform future planning.
  • Pupil’s view sought through termly SEN pupil voice questionnaires and Pupil Voice throughout school.
  • Extend any resources that they show a preference for.
  • Most importantly, ensure that children with SEND are happy, motivated and make expected progress throughout their time in school.

 

We enable all children to engage fully in all aspects of school life. To do this, we:

  • Ensure that all children with SEND are fully included in all activities of the school in order to promote the highest levels of achievement.
  • Ensure that all pupils have access to the school curriculum and all school activities.
  • Ensure every child has the entitlement to a sense of achievement.
