How do we consult with our SEN pupils

Consultation with Children and Young People with SEND

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.

At Esh Church of England (Aided) Primary School we highly value the contributions children make to their own journey through school and we seek to involve them throughout their time with us.

Our aim is to ensure that all children attending Esh Church of England (Aided) Primary School receive provision that maximises their enjoyment and achievement.

Consultation with parents and carers of children and young people with SEND

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. We believe that consultation with families is key to securing success in this area.
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.

At Esh Church of England (Aided) Primary School we actively listen to views of parents and carers. We encourage parents and carers to contact Mrs Johnston, the Class Teacher or member of Support Staff working with their child at any time. We hold termly Parent Consultation Evenings, provide formal written Interim Progress Reports in Spring Term and a formal Annual Report in the Summer Term. Formal Questionnaires are distributed to parents and carers in the Summer Term and the results of these are shared with the Full Governing Body to inform school developments.

If you would like to discuss your SEND requirements in detail please contact the school to arrange an appointment.
