SEN & Disabilities

How are parents involved in school life?


The school believes that parents hold key information and have a critical role to play in their children’s education. For this reason we actively seek to work with parents of pupils with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND). All teachers, the Leader of SEN, pastoral and other staff have an important role in developing positive and constructive relationships with parents. We recognise that some parents require both practical help and emotional support if they are to play a key role in the education of their children. For this reason we seek to develop partnerships with local parent support groups, external agencies and voluntary organisations.


The school works in partnership with parents of pupils in accordance with guidance in the 2014 Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND) Code of Practice: 0 to 25 Years.


  • If the class teacher has an initial concern about a pupil’s progress parents will be invited to discuss this with the teacher at the earliest opportunity and be told of strategies in place to help their child
  • If a decision is being considered to move a pupil on to SEN support then parents will be asked for their views prior to any decision being made. Parents will be fully informed of any additional programme in place for their child.
  • Parents’/carers’ views will be sought when a pupil’s support plan is drawn up and suggestions as to how these can be supported at home will be given
  • Parents are invited to each review and their comments are taken into consideration when deciding upon future action.
  • In terms of an Annual Review, parents’ comments are sought prior to the review report being drafted and incorporated into the final report.
