How do you involve parents/carers in the monitoring and planning for children with SEND? What support do you offer families?

We aim to involve parents/carers at different stages in this process and to invite parents to at least one SEND event per year. We inform parents of any changes to SEND status or of any new interventions in school. To work with an external provider, we always ensure we obtain consent first. We welcome parent/carer responses to add to IEPs.  

We have a dedicated Inclusion team who liaise with all of our SEND students’ parents/carers. We do this both formally through review meetings and informally through ongoing conversations.  Where we are unable to offer specific interventions we will always signpost parents/carers to the relevant support and actively monitor outcomes.
