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.
All SEND pupils create a pupil passport in conjunction with learning support assistants where views are views are collected from the young person.
Pupil and parent voice are collected as part of the review invite where they are requested to complete a questionnaire prior to attending the meeting. Pupils are also encouraged to stand for school council representatives.
Consultation with parents and carers of children and young people with SEND
At St Bede’s Catholic Comprehensive School and Byron Sixth Form College 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:
- Ongoing informal and formal 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 termly reviews of a child’s SEND Support Plan or the Annual Review of their Statement of SEND or EHC Plan.
- Parent voice is collected as part of the review invite where they are requested to complete a questionnaire prior to attending the meeting.
- SEND coffee afternoons
If you would like to discuss your SEND requirements in detail please contact the school to arrange an appointment.
