How Can You Support Your Child?

We are committed to working in partnership with the parents and carers of students identified with Special Educational Needs and/or Disabilities. Parents and carers will be involved with the planning process of Special Educational Needs and/or Disability provision and will be supported with information about organisations who can provide support for both them and their child. We strive to ensure that parents and carers are clear about the actions to be taken for or on behalf of their child and the ways in which these will be monitored and reviewed. Where we make suggestions about the ways you can support your child they will be specific and achievable.

Some of the ways in which you can support your child are:

  • Supporting and reviewing targets
  • Attending appointments
  • Attending information evenings and parent consultation evenings
  • Discussing A&Es and skill development or levels of progress
  • Discussing annual reports
  • Attending Annual Review Meetings
  • Sharing information
  • Completing and returning paperwork
  • Reinforcing expectations for behaviour and learning
  • Aiding organisation and supporting structures for homework and additional learning
  • Encouraging regular and prompt attendance

"High-achieving, well ordered schools are characterised by good home-school relationships."
