Open and Honest Communication
How to speak to a member of the Inclusion Team if you have a concern
We always encourage you to talk to your child’s class teacher in the first instance. This can be done via the School Office by arranging a telephone appointment.
We hold regular review meetings so that you can find out how your child is progressing in school. This ensures that we work together to provide the best opportunities for your child. All the information we need to share with you will be clear and easy to understand.
Our governing body has a governor who is responsible for special educational needs and disabilities. Her name is Mrs Seamina Sultana.
What happens if there is a concern about your child?
Our school endeavours to support all pupils that have additional needs, such as:
- Communication and Interaction
- Cognition and Learning
- Social, Emotional and Mental Health Difficulties
- Sensory and/or Physical Needs
We work with a range of agencies to help identify specific needs. These include:
- Pupil and School Support (PSS) – Victoria Cox
- Educational Psychologist (EP) – Lawrence Campbell
- Communication and Autism Team (CAT) – Michelle Williams
- Speech and Language Therapy (SALT) - Stockland Green Health Centre
- Emotional and Behavioural Needs – Simon Currigan (Beacon Schools)
Our school may refer your child to other agencies as appropriate. We will always consult you and request permission before a referral is made.
If your child has been identified as having additional needs, relevant targets and support will be put in place. This will always be shared with you so that we can work together to help your child reach their full potential. The Inclusion Team will make sure that all appropriate school staff are aware of your child’s additional needs.
You will be invited into school each term to discuss progress with the class teacher and you will be able to share your views. Your child’s views will also be listened to. We operate an 'open door policy' and you can make an appointment to speak to your child’s teacher or a member of the Inclusion Team at any time during term time.
