Working with Pupils and Parents/Carers of Pupils with SEND
Best practice in this area includes:
- The SEND information report provides a comprehensive summary of provision at the school.
- Systems are in place to allow parents and carers to meaningfully contribute to shaping the quality of support and provision.
- The school and parents work in partnership to achieve genuine co-production, for example parent/carer forums and workshops, and structured conversations for pupils with SEND with EHC plans.
- Pupils with SEND speak highly of the support they receive. Where appropriate, they are able to articulate how the support they have had from the school has made a real difference.
- There are opportunities for pupils with SEND to become involved in pupil voice. For example pupils with SEND are represented on the school council.
- Pupils with SEND are involved in wrap-around activities; they are supported through a variety of enrichment activities, lunchtime clubs and out of hours support.
- Pupils, parents and carers are made aware of local and national services that provide impartial advice and support such as the SEND Information, Advice and Support Service (IASS).
