Yes. We want to know about what your child wants and what you want for them. At least once a year, we will talk to you and your child about hopes and dreams. Children learn best when school and home work together to support them.
What information should I bring if I come to talk to the school about my child’s SEND?
Please bring any medical letters (e.g. a diagnosis or a letter from a paediatrician) or any other relevant paperwork you would like to share with school. Don’t worry if you don’t have any paperwork- it’s more important that we talk to you.
Person centred planning is a visual approach to recording a child’s hope and dreams and their journey towards them. It is a process for continual listening and learning, focussing on what is important to the child now and in the future.

Can I ask for my child to be on SENS, or to stay on SENS?
If you are concerned about the progress your child is making, please talk to their class teacher and discuss what is already being done to support them. If the teacher agrees that your child needs something more, they may suggest that they gather more evidence and organise assessments and then have a meeting with you and the SENCO to decide on a plan to support your child.
