Parental and Child Involvement
How are parents/carers involved?
We believe that partnership with parents is crucial when ensuring the progress of our children. For this reason, parents are regularly updated on their child’s well-being and progress either through informal chats in the playground, phone calls or pre-arranged meetings. Parents of children with SEND are invited to attend termly IEP reviews and are asked to comment on their views of their child as well as share targets. We ask our teachers to provide parents with resources and strategies to help them with working on targets at home. Parents can contact the SENco at any time if they are concerned or have any questions.
How are children involved in their education?
Children are given their own child friendly version of the targets from their IEP and these are explained during their IEP meeting. At the meeting, they are also encouraged to tell us how they feel about their well-being, work and progress.
What kind of support is offered to children who need to improve their emotional and social development?
We have a variety of strategies and clubs available depending on the needs of the children at the time. Some examples are;
- A lego club- to help children with their social interaction;
- School social worker from Faith in Families;
- One to One mentoring sessions with LSAs;
- The use of social scripts/stories.
