Communication with parents is key at every stage of the SEND identification process. 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 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 are made aware that they have an entitlement to support from the Special Educational Needs team and/or Disabilities Information, Advice and Support Service (SENDIASS).

Our SENDco is Mrs Kat Trownson. 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 Trownson (SENDco) is supported by Miss Beckett (Executive Principal).
