We will have an early discussion with the pupil and their parents / carers when identifying whether they need special educational provision. Parents and teachers can, by working together, build up a more complete picture of a pupil and his/her needs. We intend that parents will feel able to ask about our provision and express any concerns to us. In return, we will seek their help regarding work that they can do with their child at home.
The views of the pupil will be sought and the pupil will be involved in the process. All communications with children and adults will be recorded, dated and added to their personal file.
We will formally notify parents when it is decided that a pupil will receive SEN support.
Documents sent home to adults, for example My Plans, copies of which will need to be signed and returned to class teacher.
Information about the children currently on the school’s SEND Register is circulated confidentially at regular intervals to all teachers and teaching assistants. Where the need is appropriate, mid-day staff are also informed.
Parent's permission will be requested to contact outside agencies such as, speech and language therapy.
