Communication with parents is key at every stage of the SEND journey. We operate an ‘open door’ policy in which we want to work closely with parents as a team to support the child and parents. Regular contact with parents is important for children with SEND. All parents can discuss their child’s progress and targets at throughout the journey. For some, regular communication may take place daily with the teacher before and after school. When a child is receiving SEN support, parents will be informed that they have an entitlement to support from the Special Educational Needs team and/or Disabilities Information, Advice and Support Service (SENDIASS).
Our SENCO is Mrs Chris Suich. It is the role of the SENCO to oversee and co-ordinate the provision that the school makes for students with SEND. She will support the early identification process and the monitoring of ongoing support and its effectiveness. Mrs Suich is supported by Mrs Trownson (SEND lead teacher), Mrs Fleming (SEND TA) and Miss Beckett (SENDco).
If you have any concerns you can contact her by emailing the academy at firstname.lastname@example.org or you can ring the main office to arrange an appointment or ask for a call back on 01472 503350.
