Holistic Support by working with Other Professionals
For some children, additional support from external agencies, with parent’s permission, will be sought.
This external support may be from an:
Progress of your children will be monitored closely and where necessary multi-disciplinary meetings will be held with parents in school to agree appropriate plans.
Many of the above professionals support with training our staff team. Often this is in response to individual or groups of children's needs. However, on-going audits of the skills of staff are also carried out throughout the school year and a training programme put into place to respond to needs. At times this will involve all school staff, at others it will be targeted to those staff working directly with a specific child or group of children.
Recent examples include:
PARTNERSHIP WITH PARENTS
We offer an open door policy as far as possible and parents are welcome into school to discuss their child’s learning and take part in school events to find out more about the curriculum and activities on offer. If a longer discussion is needed, then parents are encouraged to make an appointment to meet the class teacher before or after school by phoning the school office.
Mrs Rushby is also available to answer any further questions you may have about your child’s needs.
All information from external agencies will be shared with parents personally or through written reports.
Class teachers will share IEP targets with you as parents on a half termly basis and discuss the progress made and how best to support your child at home to reach their next steps.
Sometimes many agencies are involved with a child and to help manage and co-ordinate all these people ,an Early Help Assessment (EHA) may be set up, so parents and school staff can meet regularly with all the agencies involved.
