WHAT IF MY CHILD NEEDS EXTRA SUPPORT?
eachers plan to meet the needs of all children so that all can learn and make the most of their abilities. Some
children will occasionally need extra help and our support staff work both in and outside the classroom to extend and support learning. Targeted interventions are used to personalise the learning experiences that are provided for individuals.
EXTERNAL AGENCY SUPPORT
There are times that we require specialist involvement to meet the needs of your child. At such times we may call on a variety agencies or professionals to offer your child or family further support, e.g. Behavioural Support Team, Counsellors & Therapists, Educational Psychologists, Children & Families Service and Speech & Language Therapy.
PARTNERSHIP WITH PARENTS
Parental Support: We believe that parents/carers play a vital role in the progress and development of their children and we positively encourage their support. Any parent/carer who has a concern about their child’s progress can speak to their child’s teacher or the Headteacher at any mutually agreed time.
There is a regular newsletter that keeps parents/ carers informed about school life which children will bring home fortnightly.
REPORTING TO PARENTS
There are termly consultation evenings where you will be able to discuss your child’s progress with their class teacher and see examples of their work. Samples of their work are collected every term and these help form the assessment of your child’s progress, alongside regular and ongoing teacher assessment. Children’s annual reports of progress are produced and sent to parents during the summer term.
