• What are the arrangements for consulting parents of pupils with special educational needs and how will I be involved in the education of my child?
At Nettleworth School we work closely with parents to gain a better understanding of their child, and involve them in all stages of their child’s education. If an assessment or referral indicates that a pupil has additional learning needs or a special educational need, the parents and the pupil will always be consulted with regards to future provision. Support will also be offered in terms of understanding SEND procedures and practices, providing regular reports on their child’s progress, and providing information on the provisions for pupils within the school as a whole, and the effectiveness of the SEND policy and the school’s SEND work.
Parents are invited to attend meetings with staff and external agencies (if involved) regarding their child, and are kept up to date and consulted on any points of action drawn up in regards to the provision for their child. In cases where more frequent regular contact with parents is necessary, this will be arranged based on the individual pupil’s needs.
