How will I know if my child is making progress?

The progress of children who are receiving SEN support is reported to parents in the same way as for all other children. Parents are encouraged to discuss progress at Assertive Mentoring meetings with the child's class teacher. This is also an opportunity for school staff to feedback the outcomes of intervention work and the next steps which have been planned. Where a child is working with an external agency parents are usually invited to some initial discussions with the relevant professional and receive feedback. This information is also provided to school so that staff can work with parents to implement recommendations. The effectiveness of provision is measured using assessment data which is gathered before, during and after the provision takes place. This information informs future provision for that specific child and also future provision for other children.

All children on the SEN register also have their own Personal Learning Plan (PLP) which is written and renewed on a half termly basis. You are encouraged to contribute to and sign this and support your child at meeting their targets at home.

Staff are always keen to speak to any parents or carers about their child's progress. Feel free to come and book a time to do this.
