Consulting with our SEN Pupils, Parents & Carers

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 are encouraged to take an active role with setting their outcomes and discussing them with the class teacher/SENCO.  The children have regular discussions with staff to regarding their progress and support.


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.

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 regular reviews of their child’s SEN Support Plan/ EHC Plan.


The SENCO arranges to have discussions with parents and children to determine their feelings and wishes about the support that they receive. This is also included in the Support Plan review meetings. Parents and children also have the opportunity to complete a questionnaire to share their thoughts and these are used to inform future provision.
