How do we consult with parents of children with SEND and involve them in their child’s education?
At Dorrington we aim to work in partnership with all parents to ensure that the best possible provision is put in place for all pupils. Class teachers are available at the beginning and end of each day by appointment.
Parents are consulted with regularly throughout their child’s education and their views and/or wishes are recognised and if appropriate and wherever possible acted upon.
There are half termly meeting with parents to discuss PCPs (pupil centred plan), reviews, general progress and to set new desired outcomes.
When a pupil is referred to an outside agency, the parents are consulted and their views are recorded. Parents may be asked to meet the professional who is assessing their child and this usually takes place on the school site.
The SENDCo and class teacher will then meet with the parents to discuss the findings of the report and how suggestions are to be implemented.
Parents of pupils who have an Education, Health and Care (EHC) plan are invited to annual meetings and their views are recorded as part of the meeting.
Parent Council consists of parents from across the school including parents of children with SEND.
